Abstract

The surface harmonics method (SHM) is one of the approaches to neutron-physical reactor computa-tion which reasons and develops the method of homogenization. The symmetry of cells in the method of homogenization and in the SHM is still being used while equations deriving. Cells can be asymmetric in reality. The surface harmonics method allows us to obtain finite-difference equations for a heterogeneous reactor core with asymmetric cells. This allows one to check SHM recommendations on choosing boundaries of the reactor unit cells. The examples of test one dimension tasks solution with asymmetric cells for substantiation of the unit cells boundaries choice for the reactor core are shown in this paper.
