Abstract : A study was made of a series of pulse exposures of the monkey using a pulsing TRIGA reactor. The reported doses are based on the kerma calculated from threshold foil data for fast neutrons and the gamma exposure determined by silver activated glass rods. These values were compared with extrapolated (by monitoring sulfur) values determined using tissue equivalent ionization chambers for total dose, a Hurst proportional counter for fast neutron dose, and a graphite - CO2 ionization chamber and a tetrachloroethylene chemical dosimeter for gamma dose.
