Computation of the Residual Radiation Transmission Factor for the Marine Corps LVTP7
NAVAL ORDNANCE LAB WHITE OAK MD
Pagination or Media Count:
The present work reports the results of an effort to compute the protection factor and the residual radiation transmission factor for the Marine Corps LVTP7 troop carrier in a field of radioactive fallout. The P7 is similar to another vehicle, the army M113 APC armored personnel carrier, for which experimental data are available, and the author has used those results in the method. Briefly, the author has developed an approximate analytical technique, which enables us to calculate the protection factor for an enclosure whose walls are composed of plane slabs having arbitrary orientations.
