Abstract

Studies were carried out to design a shielding for BNCT facility in the end of Kartini reactor’s thermal column with predesigned collimator. The design consist of selecting the material and their thickness. The shielding is required to absorb the leaking radiation until the Dose Limit Value of 20 mSv/year for radiation worker is met. The material considered were paraffin, barite concrete, borated polyethylene, stainless steel 304 and lead. The calculation was done using MCNPX tally facility with converted dose limit value of 10.42 µSv/hour. Design number two were chosen as the best from three designs which surrounded a room with length, width and height of, respectively 200 cm, 200 cm and 166.4 cm. The first and main layer are borated polyethyelene and barite concrete of 20 and 30 cm, respectively. The additional layer are borated polyethyelene and barite concrete of 15 cm and 15 cm with less volume than the main layer to decrease the primary straight radiation from the thermal column. Maximum radiation dose rate is 7.0746 µ Sv/hour in cell 227 with average dose rate of 2.58712 µSv/hour.
