Mathematical Formula's For Gamma exposures

Does anyone know the matematic formulas to determine an exposure time? I want to do a spreadsheet based on these formula's but dont know what they are. They are obviously logarithmic functions as can be seen by the layout of the slide rules, but i dont know how to calculate it.

Appreciate any help.

I want to be able to determine by spreadsheet safe working distances based on size and thickness of piping, use and size of collimator, whether pipe is full or empty, any other shielding in area, etc....

By having spreadsheet I can do what if scenarios very easily to determine this.

Ice, provide me with your email address. I have some excel spreadsheets that do that.

Re: Mathematical Formula's For Gamma exposures
Some years ago we provided NDT.net a series of simple problem solving software. These can be freely downloaded at http://www.ndt.net/publicat/bibliog/pss.htm

Exposure times as were determined by the old slide rules are included in the RT ProblemSolver
Regards
Ed

Re: Mathematical Formula's For Gamma exposures
Thanks Ed. But what are the actual formuala to use to calculate this mathematically. I would like to configure a spreadsheet for my own specific uses and applications.

IClampers,

did you ever get this figured out?

I have a formula, however, Im having difficulties fine tuning it... its a little out from the times we are using... I can achieve these times by adjusting a tuning value, but its no help when its for every weld :D

Download Virus Scan recommended!

Maybe this can help. It was developed by a guy at Livermore Nat'l Labs and was given to me. I have UT formulae as well.

One of my technician actually downloaded it from the internet onto his blueberry.

ET = (thickness factor)(source factor)(density factor)(SFD)squared(collimator factor)
divided by 144(curie)
