|Abstract||Determination of the total absorbed dose of gamma radiation in the irradiated system represents one of the problems of radiobiological and medical studies. An attempt was made to clarify the problem by determining the distribution of the absorbed energy between the various components of the medium, using a Monte Carlo type calculation on the Strael3 computer. The complex heterogeneous system considered consisted of cylindrical, water-equivalent bodies, cylindrical gamma sources placed either within or outside of the irradiated bodies, and auxiliary components. The average tion from the Co/sup 60/ source was 1.25 Mev. The calculation involved the creation of a model of the generation and the trajectory of a gamma quantum and the determination of the Compton scattering and allowed the efficiency coefficients in air, water, Plexiglas, and brass to be determined. Treatment of 200 to 300 tracks was found to yield statistically meaningful values. Results of this semi-empirical method agreed with previously obtained experimental data. (TTT)|
|Learning Resource Type||Article|
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
