5 MeV. 6 What fraction of 10 MeV neutrons would be transmitted through a 1 cm thick Pb shield? 1 b). 856. 1 Sources of Neutrons The most significant source of neutrons is the operating reactor. Large numbers of neutrons are generated in the fission process. 42 from U-235 fission). For the purposes of a biological shield, these neutrons are divided into two categories. (i) Prompt fission neutrons: These neutrons are produced at the instant when fission occurs. They are most numerous and energetic (E > 1 MeV).

23) Hence the total fluence rate (also known as build-up fluence rate) is the product of the uncollided fluence rate and Bm(µt). 3 [1]. e. the average photon travel distance between interactions) is quoted as the thickness of the shield material in terms of the number of mean free paths. 1 m thickness. What would the dose rate at the outer surface of the shield be? 36. 78. 22) relates exclusively to a mono-directional beam incident on a slab shield. The build-up factors can be computed for other types of sources.

3 in terms of the normalised dose, D/D50 for values of V of 2, 5 and 10. To produce a sigmoid shape, V must be greater than unity. The threshold dose is specified (by the ICRP based on examination of the relevant data) below which H is estimated to be very small, approaching zero. 5. In order to prevent unnecessary computation to estimate the risks at low levels of dose, the threshold value is specified as the dose which confers a risk of 1%. 3). Fig. 4 Internal Irradiation Internal irradiation is caused by the incorporation of radioactive materials within the body in various physical and chemical forms.
