DEPOSITION OF GAMMA-RAY HEATING IN STRATIFIED LEAD AND WATER SLABS

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Typical results are given from a calculation of the deposition of heat in stratified lead and water slabs caused by a monodirectional, monoenergetic beam of gamma rays incident on the slabs. A total of 512 cases were calculated for infinite slabs with finite thicknesses of 1, 2, 4, and 6 mean free paths; source energies of 1, 3, 8, and 10 Mev, and source angles of incidence which were chosen to give slant slab thicknesses of 1, 2, 3, and 4 times the normal thickness. The results were fitted to an empirical formula, which can be simplified for special cases. ... continued below

A total of 512 cases were calculated for infinite slabs with finite thicknesses of 1, 2, 4, and 6 mean free paths; source energies of 1, 3, 8, and 10 Mev, and source angles of incidence which were chosen to give slant slab thicknesses of 1, 2, 3, and 4 times the normal thickness. The results were fitted to an empirical formula, which can be simplified for special cases. While for the cases examined, the fit was usually good to within 5%, it is to be emphasized that the formula has been compared only with the results from a very limited number of parameters. (auth)
