This work presents an investigation of the self-attenuation of -rays emission from nuclear materials for measuring the mass content and isotopic composition of nuclear materials by non-destructive assay technique. The self-attenuation correction factor could be estimated by the use of linear attenuation factor of the assayed sample material, the geometrical configuration of the assay set-up and the position of the assayed sample relative to the detector. A simplified Monte Carlo scheme has been… CONTINUE READING
