Proximal Policy Optimization for Radiation Source Search

This work investigates the sequential decision making capability of deep reinforcement learning in the nuclear source search context and finds that the RAD-A2C has comparable performance to the information-driven controller across SNR in a convex environment and at lower computational complexity per action.

Local densitometry of wood by gamma back-scattering

Density of wood is one of the major material property. The article presents a simple, quick and precise local density measurement based on the gamma back-scattering technique. The equipment works

Gamma-ray attenuation technique for determining density and water content of wood samples

The method of determination of density and moisture content in wood samples by attenuation of a collimated monoenergetic beam of Am gamma-radiation is presented as the recommended method for flow

Direct Gamma Ray Densitometry of Wood

SYNOPSIS Wood density was determined in various wood species representing a wide range of densities using 60 KeV collimated soft gamma radiation from an Americium241 energy source. In the samples

A Compton scattering technique to determine wood density and locating defects in it

A Compton scattering technique is presented to determine density and void location in the given wooden samples. The technique uses a well collimated gamma ray beam from 137Cs along with the NaI(Tl)

Comparison of the pilodyn and torsiometer methods for the rapid assessment of wood density in living trees

Two experiments were carried out to evaluate the "Pilodyn Wood Tester" (which operates by measuring the penetration of a steel striker pin) for nondestructive assessment of wood density in living

Design, modelling and construction of a continuous nuclear gauge for measuring the fluid levels

In this paper, we report on design, modelling and construction of a simple continuous nuclear gauge for measuring the fluid levels in vessels. In this instrument, a point source and a point detector

A wood densitometer using direct scanning with X-rays

SummaryA computerised wood densitometer system using X-rays is described. The technique uses 5 mm increment core samples, machined to 2 mm thickness in the axial direction of the fibre, and an
