Abstract:

An evaluation was made of the effects of three common types of interior partitions within multistory structures on the dose rates from infinite uniform fields of fallout contamination. Comparisons are made between experimentally de termined steel model results utilizing cobalt-60 gamma radiation and those obtained through use of the OCD engineering manual entitled Design and Review of Structures from Fallout Gamma Radiation. A comparison is also made between partition results from limited fields of con tamination and previous experimentally deter mined limited-field results for similar struc tures without partitions. Agreement is excel lent between experimentally measured and com puted infinite-field dose rates for the three partition geometries compared - typical box, corridor, and compartment types.
