I don't know the answer to your question, but there is a great deal
of accelerator shielding
information in NCRP-51 and the more recent version of this NCRP Guide.
Also the are books like
Accelerator Health Physics by Patterson and Thomas and the Accelerator
Coursebook by Cossairt.
In addition, there are accelerator shielding computer codes available
from the RSICC
(Radiation Shielding Information Center) at Oak Ridge National Lab. and
MCNP5 --- Monte Carlo Neutral Particle Program (neutron, gamma)
MCNP5X --- Higher Energy Version of MCNP
EGS --- Electron Gamma Shower
Fluka --- Hadron Transport Code --- High Energy
LAHET --- Hadron Transport
MARS --- Soviet Computer Code
CASIM --- older Hadron Transport Code
And so on.
If you do a web search on each computer code's name, I expect you'll
find recent information
about each one.
For the rest of Radsafe, for the next few weeks, there are Summer
Sunday tours of
Brookhaven National Lab (USA).
Sometimes, Lykins and Lapp could be former geology students at
(SUNY). Not Lichens and LAPPlanders. Ralph Lapp is also another name you
could look up on
Dr. Grof, if you send more details about your accelerator to be
shielded, I'm sure some people here
on the list would be glad to offer comments on how to shield it.
Take Care... Regards, Joseph R. (Joe) Preisig, PhD

Did anybody know something about the " THE SANDWICH FOR RADIATION
STRUCTURES " to build radiation shielding for accelerators?
