DESIGN OF THE NMSR PRIMARY SHIELD

The purpose of this report is to describe the shielding calculations and techniques used in sizing the NMSR primary shield, the results obtained, and the resulting shield thicknesses. The present report covers many of the items scheduled for presentation in the final NMSR shield design report to be issued in November of this year. Although some further detailing of the primary shield design and of the flux and dose profiles from the reactor may be expected at that time, there should be no major variations from the values reported herein.
