Attenuation of Gamma Radiations Emitted From fission Products (90Sr, 60Co) from UO2 Fuel inside PWR reactor


In this paper, a computer study by a program written in a language )MATLAB( to studyattenuation of gamma- raysproduced by nuclear fission process that occurs ceramic fuelUO2 insidethe burning power plants burning inside power plants that light water, where it was noted that theamount of radiation attenuation emitted from radioactive isotopes less when increasing the thicknessof the material used as a shield and visor, as well as at least increase linear attenuation coefficient ofthe material,)Any the intensity of radiationbe less in the lead of concrete and therefore less of water(.
