Anthropomorphic Phantom Radiation Dosimetry at the NATO Standard Reference Point at Aberdeen Proving Ground,
DEFENCE RESEARCH ESTABLISHMENT OTTAWA (ONTARIO)
Pagination or Media Count:
As part of the NATO Dosimetry Intercomparison Project, a series of experiments were conducted at Aberdeen Proving Ground in September 1986 in order to determine neutron and gamma-ray doses delivered to various internal and external locations on an anthropomorphic phantom from a fission source. Thus the effect of such parameters as self-shielding by the body on dosimeter reading may be determined. The results will be used eventually to validate computer simulations of the Aberdeen environment in order to understand completely the correlation between dosimeter reading and bone marrow dose, or other parameters relating to performance decrement.
