Abstract:

The handbook discusses problems of radiation safety in institutions and plants handling radioactive substances and sources of ionizing radiation, and gives a systematic presentation of the principles and responsibilities for organizing dosimetric controls and other protective measures. Tabulated data on radiation doses and their biologic effects, and on dosimetric calibration equipment are presented, and dosimetric methods are explained. Rules and principles for the safe transportation of radioactive materials and the removal of radioactive waste are given. The handbook is intended for scientific workers, engineers, and members of the dosimetric control service in institutions and plants dealing with radioactive substances and sources of ionizing radiation. The presented data were compiled from Soviet and foreign literature published up to 1966. Author
