Using the EGS4 computer code to determine radiation sources along beam lines at electron accelerators

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The EGS computer code, developed for the Monte Carlo simulation of the transport of electrons and photons, has been used since 1970 in the design of accelerators and detectors for high-energy physics. In this paper we present three examples demonstrating how the current version, EGS4, is used to determine energy-loss patterns and source terms along beam pipes, (i.e., including flanges, collimators, etc.). This information is useful for further shielding and dosimetry studies. The calculated results from the analysis are in close agreement with the measured values. To facilitate this review, a new add-on package called SHOWGRAF, is used in order ... continued below
