Abstract : This report provides the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI) with practical guidance on the use of ionization chambers for performing mixed-field dosimetry at the TRIGA reactor. Experimental techniques, calculational formulas, physical constants, and correction factors are discussed, with emphasis on practice rather than theory in order to provide consistency and long-term continuity to the reactory dosimetry program at AFRRI.
