     I expect shielding design is part of radiological  engineering.  I 
expect running MCNP (Monte Carlo Neutral Particle Program),  MCNPX, CASIM, 
LAHET, FLUKA, EGS, other HP codes, is part of radiological  engineering.
    Health Physics and Radiological Engineering have  considerable 
    For more HP Computer Codes see the RSICC (Radiation  Shielding 
Information Center) website at Oak Ridge National Lab.
    Making HP detector measurements properly is probably  part of 
Radiological Engineering.

Dear  RadSafe members,

I am in the process of writing a chapter for a  book, and one of the areas
discussed is radiological engineering.   Whereas nuclear engineering and
health physics all have fairly strong  definitions that may be found in the
literature, old and new, I am finding  it a lot more difficult to find
concrete definitions of the field of  radiological engineering. I have my 
definition, but I want to make sure  I point to other references.

To that end, I am  asking:

1.       Does anyone have any  references that define or outline what the
field of radiological  engineering is? If so, might you share?

2.        Within the field of radiological engineering, are there 
for  important texts/papers/reports/etc that fall within the broad area  of
radiological engineering?  For example, I have Eichholz's  "Radioisotope
Engineering", but I am interested in hearing of others. My  apologies if 
is an broadly-defined request; I am fishing for info. I  am especially
interested in obscure references that some of you may have  and be willing 

Best  regards,
