DOSE RATE DISTRIBUTION IN A COMPARTMENTED STRUCTURE

Measurements are reported of the gamma radiation-induced dose in a compartmented steel structure. The experimental dose profile is compared with predictions based on computational techniques in the Office of Civil Defense Engineering Guide, as well as with computations performed by the Monte Carlo technique. Although agreement within experimental accuracy is reached between the Monte Carlo and the experimental measurements, the OCD predictions appear to overestimate the dose because of an incomplete consideration of the effect of spacing of the structure slabs. The degree of conservatism does not appear to be serious, however.
