Effects of various radiation source characteristics on shielding requirements at the potential Yucca Mountain repository

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This radiation shielding study provides dose rate information that can be used to estimate required shielding thicknesses for different repository configurations, including various hot cells and vaults in the waste-handling building, the boreholes in the underground emplacement area, and the transfer casks. The study determines gamma and neutron source strengths for various waste types and source geometries representative of conditions at the repository and determines dose rates as a function of shielding thickness for selected materials.

Physical Description

207 p.
