A sodium tank method for measuring the neutron flux produced by the interactions of 660-MeV protons with an extended lead target is described. The problems of optimizing the tank size and minimizing the activity induced in the irradiated solution are considered. In comparison to other methods for measuring neutron fluxes, the sodium tank method is easy to use, and its relative error is within ∼10%.
