Abstract:

Experiments are described which were performed on the Godiva II reactor with the use of ionization chamber Semirad systems. The experiments are concerned mainly with the problem as to how close the recorded Godiva pulse agrees with theACTUAL BURST. For this purpose, the Semirad results were compared with readings from a parallelplate ion chamber and from fluor dose-rate meters. A theoretical comparison was made of the Godiva pulse with experimental data. The influence of the burst on coaxial lines used to transmit the Semirad signal was also investigated. The results affirm the ability to Semirad to follow the Godiva II gamma pulse at the closest possible distances. Author
