The Radiological Assessment and Recovery of Contaminated Areas

Description: From Abstract: "The conceptual nature of a radiological defense system and role of decontamination or reclamation in such a system are discussed. Most of the report deals with methods for reducing the observed data to interpretive form because the data were taken with a large contaminated area."

The Scattering of Thermal Radiation Into Open Underground Shelters

Description: From Introduction: "The elimination of the burn hazard in shelters depends upon a separate, systematic investigation of each suspected agent. The purpose of the present investigation was to evaluate the contribution made by radiant energy and, if such contribution proved to be significant, to suggest means of eliminating this component."

Pulse Amplifiers Using Transistor Circuits

Description: From Introduction: "The high frequency response remains important even when pulse shaping is introduced. Pulse shaping is used to improve the time resolution of the system, to minimize overload distortion, or to facilitate the action of discriminating and recording circuits. The amplifier response may be optimized by such shaping, but in general the overall characteristics will be fixed by the particular detector system."

Transistorization of Nuclear Counting Circuits

Description: From Abstract: "The advantage of long operational life, low power drain and miniaturization may be realized in nuclear counting circuits through the use of transistors. The disadvantage of instability, due to the effects of temperature change in the transistor, may be minimized in counting circuit designs. Representative circuits of a binary stage, amplitude discriminator, one shot multivibrator, and ratemeters are included. These were designed using the criteria of an minimum Beta and a maximum Ico."
