Abstract

This work describes spectral distributions of neutrons obtained as function of energy and direction at four workplace fields at the Krümmel reactor in Germany. Values of personal dose equivalent Hp(10) and effective fose E are determined for different directions of a person's oreintation in these fields and readings of personal neutron dosemeters - especially electronic dosemeters are discussed with respect ot Hp(10) and E.
