Calculation of the radiation transport in rock salt using Monte Carlo methods. Final report. HAW project

Technical Report:

Abstract

This report provides absorbed dose rate and photon fluence rate distributions in rock salt around 30 testwise emplaced canisters containing high-level radioactive material (HAW project) and around a single canister containing radioactive material of a lower activity level (INHAW experiment). The site of this test emplacement was located in test galleries at the 800-m-level in the Asse salt mine. The data given were calculated using a Monte Carlo method simulating photon transport in complex geometries of differently composed materials. The aim of these calculations was to enable determination of the dose absorbed in any arbitrary sample of salt to be further examined in the future with sufficient reliability. The geometry of the test arrangement, the materials involved and the calculational method are characterised and the results are shortly described and some figures presenting selected results are shown. In the appendices, the results for emplacement of the highly radioactive canisters are given in tabular form. (orig.)
