Monte Carlo Calculation of Exposure Rates in Dwelling Rooms
Since all building materials contain natural radioactive isotopes, a fraction of the population’s radiation burden originates from the walls of the buildings in which people live. A computer code is described here that can be used to predict the exposure rate of a room once the activity of the building material and the geometrical measurements of the room are known.
