While it is certainly true in academia, it can also be
said for any sector of the modern world that nothing
significant is ever accomplished alone. For this reason, the
author wishes to acknowledge the patient advice and trenchant
instruction of Dr. G. R. Dalton in making this research
possible. His instruction in matters of radiation transport,
shielding, and geometrical relationships was an enormous
resource toward the development of this thesis.
A debt of gratitude is also owing to Prof. J. S. Tulenko,
for his enthusiasm in the study and interest in the author's
professional development. Furthermore, the author wishes to
thank him for introducing the topic and for the invaluable
direction he provided.
Without the efforts of Mr. D. E. Haddox, the VRF program
would not have the graphical display and interface that are
essential to a virtual dosimetry simulation. His design and
implementation of the IGRIP workcell and GSL program made the
realization of a virtual dosimeter possible. In addition, the
author wishes to thank him for being receptive and helpful
with questions regarding computing and simulation techniques.
This research was performed under appointment to the
Applied Health Physics Fellowship Program administered by Oak
