THE ANGULAR DISTRIBUTION OF DOSE RATE FROM GAMMA RAYS SCATTERED THROUGH VARIOUS THICKNESSES OF IRON AND ALUMINUM
NAVAL RADIOLOGICAL DEFENSE LAB SAN FRANCISCO CALIF
The angular distribution of dose rate resulting from gamma rays of Co-60 and Cs-137 transmitted through various thicknesses of iron 0.737 in. and 1.6 in. and aluminum 2 in., 4 in., and 9 in. was measured. These experimental results were compared with Monte Carlo calculations. Comparisons over a limited range of these angular variables were also made with dose-rate distributions calculated from gamma-ray spectrometric data. Author
