Nuclear Analysis and Design of Concrete Radiation Shielding for Nuclear Power Plants
|Publication Date:||1 January 2006|
This standard contains methods and data needed to calculate the
concrete thickness required for radiation shielding in nuclear
power plants. Where possible, specific recommendations are made
regarding radiation attenuation calculations, shielding design, and
standards of documentation. The standard provides guidance to
Concrete is a mixture of materials, the exact proportions of which will differ from application to application. This standard includes a discussion of the nature of concrete, emphasizing those variable aspects of the material that are important to the shield designer. The document discusses methods of analysis and the shielding input data appropriate to each method. Applications of the analytical methods are given, including bulk transport, radiation heating, streaming, and reflection problems.
