Abstract

Experiments on measurements of a transmission neutron function in fast energy region for wide set of elements were conducted in 1960s (IPPE, Russia). Transmission’s function is included in the transport of neutrons equation and it used in all modern calculated codes. Thus obtaining a real component of this equation allows increase reliability of nuclear data used in calculations. In this work described experimental facilities, physics of experiment and are presented formulas for calculating transmission function and its uncertainty. The paper is an introductory part for next series of papers with evaluation of measured transmission function. In this series of works were evaluated uncertainty of measured values, were identified deviations from correct course of transmission function curve, was evaluated background flux, were determined energy bounds, spectrum of neutrons and average total cross section. Evaluated results were compared with calculated using nuclear data libraries.
