Abstract:

A semiempirical expression was developed for the gamma ray dose rate at any point within a concrete structure resulting from a point isotropic source lying anywhere on the ground outside the structure. This point-to-point kernel was integrated over an infinite area to check existing theories of fallout protection and to determine the variation of dose rate as a function of position within the structure.
