Abstract:

The objectives of this task are to adapt and develop radioisotope applications for use in the Naval Shore Establishment. In compiling this bibliography, applications were sought which might reduce costs, improve efficiency and quality control, and open new fields for the Naval Shore Establishment with its large industrial complexes and fleet support facilities. This literature search was conducted to determine current radioisotope applications in industry and to determine which are most applicable for Navy use. Only applications for the areas of responsibility of the Bureau of Yards and Docks are included. Emphasis is placed on possible radioisotope uses for naval civil engineering in construction, facility and equipment maintenance, harbor engineering, engineering surveys, and engineering research. The applications of radioisotopes as heat sources are not included.
