Abstract

Theoretical and experimental studies have been carried out on the shielding capabilities of "ribbed slab" configurations upon which are incident broad, parallel beams of photons similar to those emitted from a cobalt-60 source. When consideration of such non-idealized aspects as divergence of the source beam is included, the theoretical predictions and experimental measurements check very well. Certain detailed conclusions about the behavior of gamma radiation which has penetrated ribbed slabs can be drawn.
