The initial calibration experiments performed at the Radiation Test Facility of the Protective Structures Development Center are described and their results analyzed. The dose rate above an open field and the attenuation afforded by the steel frame of the test structure is calculated and found to agree well with experiment when modified calculational procedures are used. The cumulative angular distribution of direct radiation is found to be as much as fourteen percent above that predicted by theory over the range investigated. Several modifications of presently used calculational techniques are suggested.
