The Shielding of Mobile Reactors - [Part] 2

Description: From abstract: "The methods of applying results of bulk-shielding measurements to the design of reactor shields is outlined. Geometrical transformations for the more common shapes are derived, as are approximate means of calculating leakage of radiation. As an illustration of the methods, the ORNL Lid Tanks and Bulk Shielding Facility data are transformed to a standard geometry and compared. Two direct calculations of water attenuation, using cross sections described in the previous article, are finally compared with the experimental data."
