Abstract:

Results of a study of three specific items of interest to the development of procedures for estimating initial radiation protection factors for buildings are presented. These include 1 the effects of new cross section data for nitrogen and oxygen on initial radiation environments are presented 2 calculations of delayed radiation environments for large yield weapons are presented -- the calculations are based on the NUIDEA code and 3 sensitivity analyses of the effects of composition, thickness, and design characteristics of wall constructions are presented.
