Nomograms for calculating parameters of shields against direct bremsstrahlung

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The nomograms for calculating parameters of shields against direct bremsstrahlung are studied. The nomograms have been measured for the main shielding materials, such as lead, iron and concrete, with due account of accurate measurements of source spectra and contribution of secondary radiation. The utilization of bremsstrahlung sources in various fields of research, technology and medicine brings up the problem of radiation safety, designing and construction of biological shielding.
