Biokinetics and dosimetry of internal contamination
ID: FIGD-CT-2000-00053
Start date: 2001-01-01, End date: 2004-06-30
The assessment of doses and risks from radionuclide exposures is critically dependent on the development of reliable biokinetic and dosimetric models to represent the behaviour of radionuclides in the body and energy deposition in sensitive cells. This proposal from eleven....

Evaluation of non destructive testing techniques for monitoring of material degradation
ID: FIKS-CT-2000-00086
Start date: 2000-10-01, End date: 2003-09-30
The lifetime extension of aging power plants for electricity production is an economical way to reduce the cost of the kilowatt-hour for the benefit of the customers. Extending the lifetime of existing installations requires the development of innovative techniques for the ins...

Internal dosimetry - enhancements in application
ID: FIKR-CT-2001-00164
Start date: 2002-01-01, End date: 2005-06-30
Workers in the nuclear industry and members of the general public are exposed to ionising radiation, both from sources external to their bodies as to radionuclides incorporated into their bodies. The monitoring of such internal radiation exposure is less accurate and more tedi...

Mathematical calibration of a whole body counter
The Application of MIRD phantoms in whole body counting in the scanning geometry. To introduce computer supported calibration techniques the measurements of bottle phantoms filled with a Ho-166m and Co-60 solution on a whole body counter in scan geometry have been compared to...

Study of lung cancer risk and residential radon exposure
ID: FIGH-CT-1999-00008
Start date: 2000-03-01, End date: 2005-02-28
Epidemiological studies of underground miners have shown that exposure to radon and radon progeny increases the risk of lung cancer. However, there are uncertainties in using these data to estimate the risk associated with radon exposure in dwellings. In contrast, information ...

Dosimetry of aircrew exposure to radiation during solar maximum
ID: FIGM-CT-2000-00068
Start date: 2000-07-01, End date: 2004-09-30
Aircrew are exposed to an increased amount of radiation in the upper atmosphere due to the higher cruising altitudes adopted over the last decade. The inclusion of cosmic radiation as occupational exposure under revised European Union Council Directive 96/29/EURATOM has highli...

Calculation results of numerical program codes (cosmic radiation and solar events)
Simulation results of the radiation exposure caused by the galactic cosmic radiation have been compared successfully with onboard instruments. The calculation was provided by the high-energy particle transport code FLUKA, the program package EPCARD version 3.2 and CARI-6. Expe...

Evaluation results of numerical program codes and guidelines for necessary changes
If a software code can be used for the dose assessment of aircrew dosimetry an evaluation procedure have to be passed. A software code has to show a minimum set of requirements using input data, well-defined models and providing the correct output data in the appropriate uni...

TEPC - Dose rate measurement results at several flight routes (cosmic radiation and solar events)
Dose rate measurement results are the reference basis for the dose assessment of aircrew in flight altitudes. Furthermore, the measurement results provide comparison and the evaluation of cosmic radiation at flight altitudes calculated by numerical program codes.
