Abstract

Revised nomograms for calculating thicknesses of shields against direct X-rays emitted at voltages of 75 to 450 kV are given. The nomograms have been obtained for the most common shielding materials, such as lead, iron, and concrete, with due account of accurately measured spectra of primary radiation from the source, contribution of the secondary radiation, and recently introduced NRB-96 regulations of radiation safety.
