  • Ionising Radiation

    Introduction The energy level of some types of radiation is high enough so that when they interact with matter they cause the formation of electrically charged particles or ion-pairs and break molecular bonds. These so-called ionising radiations are by their nature potentially harmful to life; at high doses they can be lethal and at lower doses can cause genetic damage. Ionising radiation occurs ...

  • Non-Ionising Radiation

    Pressures on the environment may occur through chemical, physical and biological agents. The subject of this study is physical agents, where physical fields are examined. Physical fields are part of the natural environment. Depending upon their properties and the surrounding conditions, physical fields are transmitted through the spaces in which we live, potentially affecting human health and ...

  • Physical dosimetry system in radiation accidents

    We experience various types of radiation accidents. When a radiation accident happens, one of the important aspects that we have to consider is the radiation dose to the victims of the accident. To judge the health effects due to radiation exposure, it is necessary to make a dose assessment. There is a variety of dose assessment methods, of two types: biological dosimetry and physical dosimetry. ...

  • Brüel & Kjær’s radiation-resistant accelerometers

    Carrying out vibration measurements in harsh industrial environments is much easier for engineers with Brüel & Kjær’s new Type 8347-C Accelerometer. The Type 8347-C accelerometer can withstand temperatures ranging from -196°C (-321°F) to +482°C (+900°F) and has high resistance to radiation. The shear design ensures the accelerometer  superior thermal ...

  • Continuous Real Time Water Monitoring for Radiation Safety Terrorist Attack, Improper Disposal of Industrial Waste, Accidental Discharge

    Safe drinking water is essential to life on earth. Unfortunately, this vast infrastructure suffers from critical vulnerability. Keeping America safe with continuous real time water monitoring is a vital goal and is currently being addressed for biological and chemical risks. For monitoring of radionuclides in drinking water as recommended in the Safe Drinking Water Act 8, the Clean Water Act 9, ...

  • Assessment of the environmental outdoor gamma radiation levels in Sao Paulo City

    Dose values from natural radiation sources in several sites of Sao Paulo City were assessed from environmental outdoor gamma radiation levels, by using CaSO-4:Dy thermoluminescent dosimeters. Twelve monitoring stations were placed in different regions of the town including both urban and outskirts areas and the measurements were carried out quarterly and ...

  • Radioactive waste management technologies used in rehabilitation of radioactively contaminated facilities and areas at the RRC 'Kurchatov Institute' site

    Activities on rehabilitation of eleven temporary radwaste repositories are currently underway at the RRC 'Kurchatov Institute'. Technologies used for exploratory drilling of repositories, their radiation survey, cleaning fill-up soil from the repository ceilings and opening the ceilings, RW extraction, sorting and packing in containers are presented. The radiation situation at the repository site ...

  • Water Quality Monitoring and Testing Using an Environmental Logger

    Intelligent dataTaker System from CAS DataLoggers Water disruptions typically occur after a large amount of water has rapidly collected in a catchment area. As a result this water is subject to continual monitoring and testing for a variety of chemical and biological agents as well as clarity, rate of movement, and water levels for environmental management. Turbidity, conductivity, ...

  • Social-demographic profile and dose evaluation of the radiopharmaceutical facility workers

    The main aims of this work are to identify the social-demographic profile of the workers based on stratification variables such as gender, age, and tasks performed by the workers, and to evaluate the annual collective doses of workers with potential risk of ionising radiation exposure at the workplace during the years 2004?2008. In this context, the knowledge of the workforce composition in the ...

  • Effects of chronic radon-related external and internal irradiation: assessment of the dose effect curve below 200 mGy

    The long-term effects of professional exposure to radon are well-known. They result from the combined action on the lung epithelia of α-radiation due to radon inhalation and deposition in the lung of its decay products and external γ-radiation from uranium, thorium and their progeny. According to the guidelines applied by the USEPA and recommended by the ICRP, the maximal exposure in ...
