The aim of this project was to improve the capability of detecting radioactive material entering the plant, when being handled within the plant, and in the steel product and by-products produced. To this end, work has been carried out in regard to the modelling of gamma ray scattering and absorption process, modified detection equipment has been prepared for and tested in works trials to determine the effectiveness of proposed methods and systems of monitoring for radioactive contamination of scrap, steel, fume and slag.
