Abstract:

The 05R Monte Carlo code See ORNL-3622, NASA N65-17892 was adapted to calculate fast-neutron doses within and outside of concrete slab shields. Such calculations were performed for a variety of shield thicknesses 0 to 180 cm and for various monoenergetic sources from 0.7 to 14 MeV. The concrete chosen is ordinary concrete with approximately 6 water content. Results are plotted as tissue kerma versus penetration distance for each source energy. The source is in each case a broad normally incident beam. Author
