1. NAME AND TITLE
SKYPORT: Skyshine Importance Functions for Neutrons and Gamma Rays.
2. NAME AND TITLE OF DATA RETRIEVAL PROGRAMS
Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility, Newport News, Va.
4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND INFORMATION
These importance functions were developed in conjunction with calculations at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in support of the 400-GeV proton accelerator which was partially built at Brookhaven National Laboratory in the early 1980s.
5. APPLICATIONS OF THE DATA
The importance functions are used to calculate the skyshine dose by integrating the product of the source and importance over source direction and energy. The source may be a function of energy and polar angle but must have azimuthal symmetry. Typical sources are accelerators.
6. SOURCE AND SCOPE OF DATA
The data are from calculations of Alsmiller, Barish, and Childs using the DOT and GRTUNCL codes. The neutron data are presented in 4 tables for neutrons up to 400 MeV at distances from 11 m to 1005 m. The photon data are given at the same distances for photons up to 14 MeV. The units in the tables are in sieverts per source particle, whereas the original tables were published with units of rem per source particle. Air was taken to be composed of 79% nitrogen and 21% oxygen and to have a density of 1.20 x 10-3 g/cm3. Ground was assumed to be silicon dioxide with 5% water by weight and to have a density of 1.8 g/cm3.
