Title: Preliminary Recommendation for Design, Making and Control of Radiation-Shielding Concrete Structures
Author(s): S.E. Pihlajavaara
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 57-68
Keywords: concrete construction; concretes; density (mass/volume); gamma rays; neutron sources; quality control; radiation shielding; structural design; tests; walls
Abstract:The recommendation is a guide for a builder of different types of hot cell concrete walls against gamma or neutron radiation. It serves also for an introduction to more complicated shielding problems in which, e.g., simultaneous gamma and neutron radiation, high radiation intensitiesand temperature loads have to be taken into account.
