Abstract:

The primary objective of Project 2.4 participation in the KIWI-TNT Transient Nuclear Test was to test the performance of laboratory models of SEMIRAD-type mixed radiation dosimeters IM-185XE and experimental models of the individual dosimeters DT-236XE. The secondary objective was to expose different types of dosimetry to establish the neutron and gamma doses at the distances at which the measurements took place. Different types of passive dosimeters and the experimental models were enclosed in containers, and each group was placed along a straight line on ground at 11 distances ranging from 23 to 400 meters. The data analysis shows that the results obtained from the passive dosimeters agree much better for one and the same system than among different systems.
