Abstract:

On the basis of a correlated Monte Carlo technique, a computer program is developed which permits the comparison of the scattered portion of penetrating gamma radiation for ribbed slabs and for the corresponding smeared-out plane slabs. Four source configurations are studied normally incident, broad, parallel beam broad, parallel beam incident 60 degrees to the normal plane isotropic source and a fan source. The photon energy assumed is 1.25 MeV. Several thousand cases are analyzed, involving a wide variation of geometric parameters. The resulting data are approximated by an empirical formula, and values for the formula parameters are provided. Author
