steel to lead equivalent for radiation shielding

steel to lead equivalent for radiation shielding

does anyone know the steel to lead equivalent for radiation shielding based on high voly\tage electron beam?

RE: steel to lead equivalent for radiation shielding

Shielding an electron beam doesn't require any great thickness -- you must make sure the metal is thick enough to conduct the heat away -- on the other hand the inpact
of high speed E-beam generates X-rays which may require much thicker shielding.

RE: steel to lead equivalent for radiation shielding

Thanks for the reply
But its the xrays I'm shielding, not the heat. And its all dependent on KV.
