Abstract

Collections of numerical data and definition about radiation protection and dosimetry are given. It firstly gives the definitions of the different units in radiation measurement. The radiation beam deep distribution in human tissue is graphically presented. It stated the rules to apply for human protection when exposed to accidental or long period irradiations. The recommended values for the relative biological effectiveness are also discussed.The recommendations of the Chalk River conference for the dose of tolerance are given. The report of the Subcommittee on Permissible Dose for Internal Radiation of the International Commission on Radiological Protection of June 1953 is presented. It gives the real half-life, the effective energy RBE, the maximum permissible dose for known radioisotopes as well as the maximum permissible concentration in air and water. The method of calculation for a known radioisotopes mixture is given. After the presentation of the chemical composition and characteristics of the body of an adult, the radioactive doses due to {beta} and {gamma} radioisotopes are discussed and requisite numerical data for the calculation of doses due to {beta} and {gamma} radiations are given. The influence of the thickness of a water or animal tissue layer on a {beta} irradiation is studied as  More>>

The influence of the thickness of a water or animal tissue layer on a {beta} irradiation is studied as well as the transport of electrons and {beta} particles in animal tissue. A graphic determining the lead thickness needed to obtain the dose of tolerance according the energy and the activity of a {gamma} source is given as well as the lead thickness needed to protect ourself from a radium source according the radium quantity and the distance from the source.
