Influence of artificial radionuclide deposited on a monitoring post on measured value of ambient dose rate

Hiraoka, Hirokazu; Hokama, Tomonori; Munakata, Masahiro

Neighboring inhabitants of nuclear facilities must evacuate according to an ambient dose rate at a nuclear accident. The evacuation is judged by the measured value by monitoring posts (MPs). However, if the measured value increase by artificial radionuclide deposited to MP, it is considered that the dose rate of the surrounding environment is overestimated. The purpose of this research is to evaluate exactly the dose rate even if the radionuclide deposit to the MP, in order to adequately evacuate inhabitants. Just a MP and horizontal ground was simulated. To calculate ambient dose rates from the roof surface of MP and ground surface, Monte Carlo calculation was done. And, it was obtained that the ratio which the dose rate from the roof account for sum of two these dose rates. According to the result, the ratio was 42%. It suggested that the radionuclide could increase the measured value. However, because simulated system was simple, it is considered that the ratio was overestimated.
