The application of artificial neural networks technique to estimate mass attenuation coefficient of shielding barrier
(ACADEMIC JOURNALS, 2009)
This study aims to investigate comparison of radiation attenuation property of harzburgite mineral calculated by Monte Carlo (MCNP) and Artificial Neural Network (ANN). Slab sample modeled in MCNP with 1, 2 and 4 cm thickness ...
Characteristics of fired clay bricks with pumice additive
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE SA, 2015)
Production of porous and lightweight clay bricks with enhanced thermal conductivity is studied. Pumice was used as an additive to an earthenware brick to produce the pores. SEM-EDS, XRD, XRF and TG-DTA analysis of the raw ...
Physical and mechanical properties of concrete containing hematite as aggregates
(WALTER DE GRUYTER \& CO, 2011)
Radiation limits above permission limit have harmful effects on living bodies (i.e., carcinogenic, etc.). Heavyweight concrete is used in facilities such as nuclear power plant and radiotherapy room where radioactive ...
Effect of elevated temperatures on mechanical properties of high-strength concrete containing varying proportions of hematite
Aggregates typically constitute 70 to 80 wt\% of concrete, and therefore their type, size, and structure play an essential role in modifying the properties of concrete. When concrete is used for shielding nuclear applications, ...
