An experiment to measure the heat deposition in various materials in the vicinity of a spallation neutron target is described. This experiment has been performed at the Thermal Neutron Facility, TRIUMF. In the analysis of the data, the contributions to the heat deposition from (n, γ) capture processes, fast neutron, and prompt gamma-ray scattering are separated.
