Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 October 2019
Status: active
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Fissile materials and nuclear fuel technology): 27.120.30
ICS Code (Radiation measurements): 17.240
scope:

This test method covers procedures for measuring reaction rates by assaying a fission product (F.P.) from the fission reaction 238U(n,f)F.P.

The reaction is useful for measuring neutrons with energies from approximately 1.5 to 7 MeV and for irradiation times up to 30 to 40 years, provided that the analysis methods described in Practice E261 are followed.

Equivalent fission neutron fluence rates as defined in Practice E261 can be determined.

Detailed procedures for other fast-neutron detectors are referenced in Practice E261.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
