Abstract

Two discrete ordinates methods, the Sn method and the method of streaming rays (SR) are applied to electron transport problems. Calculational results in the form of energy deposition profiles are compared with those obtained by the method of moments for the case of a 200 keV plane perpendicular source embedded in infinite aluminum. In a second set of calculations, Sn and SR flux data are compared with results of analytical benchmark technique applied to the solution of the energy-independent form of the Spencer-Lewis equation for electron transport.
