IEC 60544-1:2013 

Electrical insulating materials - Determination of the effects of ionizing radiation - Part 1: Radiation interaction and dosimetry


Do you need a multi-user copy?




IEC 60544-1:2013 deals broadly with the aspects to be considered in evaluating the effects of ionizing radiation on all types of organic insulating materials. It also provides, for X-rays, gamma-rays, and electrons, a guide to dosimetry terminology, methods for dose measurements, testing carried out at irradiation facilities, evaluation and testing of material characteristics and properties, documenting the irradiation process. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) recent advances in simulation methods of radiation interaction with different matter enables the prediction of the energy-deposition profile in matter and design the irradiation procedure;
b) many new dosimetry systems have become available.
