    Abstract

    Radiation dosimetry measurements have been performed over a period of many years at the High Flux Beam Reactor (HFBR) and the Medical Research Reactor (BMRR) at Brookhaven National Laboratory to provide information on the energy distribution of the neutron fluxes, neutron dose rates, gamma-ray fluxes and gamma-ray dose rates. The MCNP Particle Transport Code provided Monte Carlo results to compare with various dosimetry measurements performed at the experimental ports, at the treatment rooms and in the thimbles at both the HFBR and BMRR.

    Keywords:

    HFBR, BMRR, neutron, gamma-ray, fluxes, dose rates, MCNP
