Abstract:

An experimental study of the radiation attenuation of two residential-type structures was made. The two model structures investigated were surrounded with rings and annular areas of simulated fallout by pumping a 10-curie, cobalt-60 source through plastic tubing at a constant velocity. Radiation measurements were taken with timeintegrating detectors. The theory of measuring radiation effects with models and the facility developed for OCDM Inc. to conduct these experiments are described. A comparison of experimental data obtained in these tests with data obtained in previous full-scale tests made on identical structures at the Nevada test site is included.
