Shielding / Special Issue on the 11th International Conference on Radiation Shielding and the 15th Topical Meeting of the Radiation Protection and Shielding Division (Part 2) / Radiation Protection
The Radiation Test Facility (RTF) is under construction at the Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Physics to control the electronics under irradiation of particles that imitate cosmic rays (protons, carbon, aluminum, iron, tin, bismuth, and uranium). For the norms of radiation safety of personnel and users of the RTF to be observed, a local shielding and beam dump must be designed. Simulations of the dose rates around the designed shielding and beam dump are carried out in the present work.
