Abstract:

A system was devised to predict the neutron-induced activity contribution to fallout exposure rates. The system uses the simplifying assumptions of 1 a semi-empirical formula to determine the soil capture fraction and 2 thermal neutron cross sections to represent weapon-neutron cross sections. Results, using these assumptions, agree with those of another complete system for predicting the neutron-induced activity contribution to fallout exposure rates. In addition, results from various portions of the system agree with results obtained by more complicated methods. Author
