Photon and Neutron Fluence-to-Dose Conversion Coefficients

This standard presents data recommended for computing the biologically relevant dosimetric quantity in photon and neutron radiation fields. Specifically, this standard is intended for use by radiation shielding designers for the calculation of effective dose. Fit coefficients are given for evaluating whole-body effective dose per unit fluence for photons with energy 10 keV to 10 GeV and for neutrons with energy 0.001 eV to 10 GeV. Eight different irradiation geometries are considered. Establishing exposure limits is outside the scope of this standard.
