Dosimetry & Shielding H*(10)

December 19th, 2016
by Joseph Magill

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)
