Some Examples for the Application of the Monte Carlo Code EGS

  • Herbert Dinter
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 3)


From a long list of applications of the code EGS1 at DESY, I will select three topics because they are directly connected with the protection of men and material against radiation. Furthermore, two of them imply the possibility to test EGS by comparing its data with experimental results.


Conversion Coefficient Target Thickness Surface Dose Absorber Plate Backscatter Coefficient 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
