Comparison of Numerically Simulated and Measured Dose Rates for Gamma-Irradiation Facility
The article provides a description of steps which were made to make comparison between numerically simulated and measured dose rates in Izotop gamma-irradiation facility (Budapest, Hungary) Numerical simulation was carried out with the help of software toolkit GEANT4. Dose measurement were made by ethanol-chlorobenzene (ECB) dosimeters. The comparison shows a good agreement between simulated and measured values. Worst accuracy was 17.08%.
