Abstract

Whenever there exists a straight port through a radiation shield, gamma rays will penetrate or “stream” through the aperture with little or no energy degradation. Nevertheless, it is often necessary to have some kind of connection between a source of radiation and an area where a high degree of shielding protection is desired. For example, various kinds of holes through reactor shields are necessary for control purposes. Also, personnel shelters from nuclear radiation must have entranceways and air ducts. Shielded vehicles require certain apertures, and ships operating in a radiation area have passageways and ventilation ducts. For these many cases where connections between radiation areas and shielded areas are necessary, it has become common practice to use ducts with offsets, or steps, or bends.
