Abstract:

This report extends the evaluation of the effects of limited rectangular fields of contamination on the dose rates within multistory structures to the specific case of a structure with 40 psf walls and 50 psf floors. Comparisons are made between experimentally determined results and those obtained through use of the OCD Guide for Architects and Engineers, the National Shelter Survey Computer Program, and the OCD manual entitled The Design and Review of Structures for Protection from Fallout Gamma Radiation. Recommended experimentally obtained multiplicative correction factors for accounting for limited strips of contamination are presented. Good agreement was obtained between experimentally measured and computed infinite-field above-ground dose rates and for basement dose rates at a 5-ft to 6-ft depth only. Basement measured dose rates were higher than computed values at greater depths. Author
