Description

  • Content Description: Tables of scattered gamma-ray fluxes in water that are suitable for integration over source spectra were generated on the IBM-7090 computer by Lagrangian interpolation of moments method results for point isotropic gamma-ray sources. Values of the fluxes were obtained for a consistent set of scattered gamma-ray energies taken in steps of 0.1 Mev from 0.1 to 1.0 Mev and in steps of 0.25 Mev from 0.25 to 10 Mev. One table was obtained for each scattered energy for various values of the source energy and of the distance from the source in mean free paths. Tables were then generated in which the distance from the source was converted from mean free paths to centimeters. The latter set may be integrated over any source spectrum to obtain the flux of scattered gamma rays in water, and, with small error, in any material in which the cross section is dominated by the Compton scattering cross section. This includes the low-Z materials such as aluminum and air. (auth)
