Reactor Dosimetry: Radiation Metrology and Assessment
One hundred papers provide an extensive overview of latest advances in reactor dosimetry. An additional nine summaries provide the status of technical workshops held at the Tenth International Symposium on Reactor Dosimetry and three keynote papers address: why we need dosimetry; the role of ASTM Committee E10 on Nuclear Technology, and reactor dosimetry activities in Japan. The 100 papers span seven areas including:
Power Reactor Surveillance includes 17 papers on reactor vessel surveillance for pressurized water reactors (PWRs) in France, United Kingdom, Korea, Japan and the United States; for VVERs in Russia, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Hungry; for heavy water reactor in Argentina; and for MAGNOX reactors in the United Kingdom. Three papers also address concrete structures outside reactor vessels
Test Reactors and Accelerator Sources addresses facilities for such applications as boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT), semiconductor testing, structural steel testing, and nuclear fuel testing in a variety of types of reactor and accelerator neutron sources.
Benchmarks and Intercomparisons contains 11 papers on experiments and analysis used to test and improve techniques and data by means of standards and calibrations and specially designed reference fields.
Cross Sections and Nuclear Data provides 11 papers on cross section measurements and evaluations; and compilation and testing of cross section libraries.
Calculations and Adjustment Methods includes 14 articles, half on neutron transport codes for modeling LWR vessels and internal structures. Remaining papers address computational methods for estimation of induced activity in ex-vessel components and neutron spectrum adjustment methods.
Damage Correlations and Damage Dosimetry discusses calculation of displacements-per-atom, kerma, and atomic-recoil energy spectra, and data libraries derived for these.
Experimental Techniques are discussed in 21 papers. Half address active detector techniques, including spectrometers and instruments for in-core monitoring and the remaining discuss passive irradiation monitoring, including activation monitoring methods.
