In environmental radiation protection, when external exposure is considered, it is common practice to refer to simplified and idealized exposure geometries: submersion in a semi-infinite cloud, exposure to ground surface contamination and exposure to soil contaminated to an infinite depth. In this vein, the GENII-LIN code offers pre-built dose rate factor libraries for commonly used standard geometries. For all scenarios where these generalized geometries are to be considered not adequate, the GENII-LIN software system provides its own external dose rate factor generator that allows for the creation of special dose rate factors for arbitrarily shaped sources. The GENII-LIN external dose rate factor generator is a modified and enhanced version of the well known shielding code ISOSHLD. In this work, we want to describe its latest development and its improved capabilities.

Abstract

In environmental radiation protection, when external exposure is considered, it is common practice to refer to simplified and idealized exposure geometries: submersion in a semi-infinite cloud, exposure to ground surface contamination and exposure to soil contaminated to an infinite depth. In this vein, the GENII-LIN code offers pre-built dose rate factor libraries for commonly used standard geometries. For all scenarios where these generalized geometries are to be considered not adequate, the GENII-LIN software system provides its own external dose rate factor generator that allows for the creation of special dose rate factors for arbitrarily shaped sources. The GENII-LIN external dose rate factor generator is a modified and enhanced version of the well known shielding code ISOSHLD. In this work, we want to describe its latest development and its improved capabilities.
