Abstract

Three moderator-type neutron survey instruments have been modelled for energy and angle dependence of the response, in greater detail than before. These response data have been verified by comparison with published experimental measurements and measurements made specifically for this project. Influences on the instrument response have also been investigated. These have included its mode-of-use and perturbations caused by variations in the instrument manufacture. The implications of these new response data have been assessed by an extensive programme of folding the responses with workplace energy distributions.
