Dosimetry & Shielding H*(10)

December 19th, 2016

The new Dosimetry & Shielding H*(10) is a further development of Nucleonica’s Dosimetry & Shielding++ with the following new features:
* The list of calculated quantities now covers a) air kerma rates Kair; b) exposure rates X; and c) ambient dose equivalent rates H*(10) for approximately 1500 gamma and x-ray emitting radionuclides (depending on the database used).
* The threshold energy used in the calculations for dose quantities can be set by the user to investigate the effect of low energy photons on the dose calculations.
* Account is taken of short-lived daughter nuclides when a parent nuclide is selected indicated with a * e.g. Cs137*.
* The underlying dataset used in the calculations can be selected from a list of international nuclear datafiles (JEFF3.1, ENDF/B-VII.1, 8th TORI)
dsh10_1The new Dosimetry & Shielding H*(10) application with the new dose quantities. A key feature is the inclusion of short-lived daughters in the calculations as indicated by an asterisk * before the physical quantities and following the nuclide name e.g. Cs137*.

Apache Subversion SVN for Nucleonica Source Control Management

December 14th, 2016

Due to the ever increasing scale and range of the applications, Nucleonica software developers are now using Subversion SVN to maintain current and historical versions of files such as source code, web pages, and documentation. Apache Subversion (often abbreviated SVN, after its command name svn) is a software versioning and revision control system distributed as free software under the Apache License (Wikipedia).
The SVN server (VisualSVN standard version) has now been installed and is running on a Nucleonica server. This can be addressed with any SVN clients such as the Tortoise SVN client. (
With the Tortoise client installed locally on the development computers, the Nucleonica programmers can address the repository with the appropriate URL to have the latest source code and keep the repository updated.
