3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

Fe-Shielder calculates shielding thickness of Iron for any photon emitting radionuclide in the energy range 0.5 to 10 MeV.

top ]
4. METHODS

Fe-Shielder assumes the radionuclide(s) as a point source and uses Taylor form of the buildup factor to calculate shielding thickness.
