Solving diffusion equations with the equivalence homogenization theory is the common method in reactor neutronics. But for some case, as for stronger absorbers, the diffusion equations will bring great errors and the transport method will be more suitable. The discontinuity factor theory has been successfully used in core diffusion computation programs and effectively reduced the homogenization error. The method of using the discontinuity factor in the transport method were studied. The result shows that higher accuracy was obtained from the discrete ordinates core transport computation program with discontinued factor.
