Pagination or Media Count:
The detailed energy, angular, and spatial distribution of neutrons and their secondary gamma rays is given for nine source energy groups, a fission spectrum, and a typical thermonuclear spectrum. Results for ranges to 2000 meters for the eleven sources are supplemented with results to 5000 meters for a fission and 12.2- to 15-MeV source. In addition to the detailed description of the radiation field, the angular distributions of Henderson dose, Snyder-Neufeld dose, tissue kerma, mid-phantom dose, concrete kerma, air kerma, ionizing silicon kerma, and non-ionizing silicon kerma are given for neutrons, and the Henderson dose, concrete kerma, air kerma, and silicon kerma are given for secondary gamma rays. Some comparisons with air-over-ground results are made.
