The critical size of a bare spherical reactor with anisotropic diffusion.
Australian Atomic Energy Commission
Using oblate spheroidal co-ordinates, the critical equation for a bare sphere with unequal axial and radial diffusion coefficients is derived. A two group model is used, with the degree of anisotropy the same in both groups.
