Radiation shielding technology
To ensure that the outside dose rate of waste package is below the limitation of national laws and regulations, based on the standard L drum, a new drum with inner shielding was proposed for intermediate-level radioactive waste ILW storage. The flux and dose were calculated and analyzed for four different cases. The analysis shows that appropriate corrections in QAD-CGA can make the trend of the calculation results more consistent with the theory. The results of this study provide not only suggestions for the design of the ILW storage drums but also useful references for other similar work. With the development of nuclear power and corresponding nuclear fuel cycle, the menace of radioactive waste has become increasingly prominent. At the end of , the total volume of the low and intermediate-level radioactive waste LILW from nuclear power plants NPPs in China was about 10, cubic meters [ 1 ].
Nuclear Energy pp Cite as. A quantity describing how neutrons or photons incident on the surface of some medium e. A factor to account for production of secondary photons in a shield. The transmitted dose from only uncollided photons times the buildup factor equals the dose from all photons, uncollided plus secondary photons. A general term for the energy transferred from radiation to matter. Specifically, the absorbed dose is the amount of energy imparted to matter from ionizing radiation in a unit mass of that matter.
MP 6759: Radiation Shielding Principles and Computations
ANS Members, please log in to purchase. This book is intended for dual use as a textbook for students in radiation shielding courses and a reference work for shielding practitioners. It emphasizes the principles behind techniques used in various aspects of shield analysis and presents these principles in many different contexts. This approach is intended to provide a strong base of understanding in order to facilitate use of the large shielding codes that have come to dominate shielding design and analysis. An assumption is made that the reader has an understanding of mathematics through basic calculus and vector analysis as well as a knowledge of the nuclear physics of radioactive decay. For most chapters, problem sets are provided. Radiation Shielding Richard E.
Handbook of Nuclear Engineering pp Cite as. This chapter deals with shielding against nonionizing radiation, specifically gamma rays and neutrons with energies less than about 10 MeV, and addresses the assessment of health effects from exposure to such radiation. The chapter begins with a discussion of how to characterize mathematically the energy and directional dependence of the radiation intensity and, similarly, the nature and description of radiation sources. What follows is a discussion of how neutrons and gamma rays interact with matter and how radiation doses of various types are deduced from radiation intensity and target characteristics. The chapter concludes with a discussion of shielding materials, radiological assessments, and risk calculations. The authors of this chapter gratefully acknowledge the guidance and support of their colleagues and mentors in the field of radiation shielding and radiation protection.
This paper presents the set of procedures developed in Radiation Protection Measurements Laboratory at National Centre for Nuclear Research for evaluation of shielding properties of high performance concrete. The purpose of such procedure is to characterize the material behaviour against gamma and neutron radiation. The shielding properties against photons were evaluated using Cs and 60 Co sources. The neutron radiation measurements have been performed by measuring the transmitted radiation from PuBe source. Scattered neutron radiation has been evaluated using the shadow cone technique. A set up of ionization chambers was used during all experiments. The gamma dose was measured using C-CO 2 ionization chamber.
