Abstract:

This paper presents results of experiments on the investigation of shielding attenuation of gamma radiation from solid, hollow, and gas filled cylindrical sources. The results are plotted in graphs. A number of measurements were made to determine the dependence of the multiple attenuation factor of gamma rays on the location of the shield between the source and the detector.
