An investigation was made of the variation of dose rate with solid angle fraction in structures of simple geometries. The experimentally determined infinite field dose rate was compared with calculations based on the Engineering Manual and Spencers Monograph. Except for the thinnest walls, the values of experimental and calculated dose rates were within 20. This was greater than the estimated experimental error, and the difference followed a pattern that suggests a definite discrepancy between experiment and calculation. The same pattern of discrepancies was found in a direct comparison of experimental and theoretical values of skyshine radiation.
