Paper Abstract

The SANDYL electron-photon coupled Monte Carlo code has been compared with previously published experimental bremsstrah-lung data at 20.9 MeV electron energy. The code was then used to calculate forward-directed spectra, angular distributions and dose-reduction factors for three practical configurations. These are: 20 MeV electrons incident on 1 mm of W + 59 mm of Be, 45 MeV electrons of I mm of W, and 45 MeV electrons on 1 mm of W + 147 mm of Be. The application of these results to flash radiography is discussed.
