Comparison of Experimental Data Versus Computer Modeling of a
Radiation Detecting Personnel Safety System Ion Chamber
The purpose of this paper is to present experimental data to
demonstrate the validity of a computer-designed safety system, based
on an ionization chamber, used in the detection of electron beams. The
first section of the paper describes the safety system, from the
radiation producing beam line to the electronic safety system
monitoring modules. The second section of the paper describes the
radiation simulation modeling program, EGS4. This computer code
predicts where the beam-generated radiation, commonly known as a
"shower," deposits its energy after colliding with beam line devices
(e.g., collimators, stoppers, etc.). This allows for the best
placement of safety devices to protect these beam line devices.
