Proc. ASME. ICONE29, Volume 14: Computer Code Verification and Validation; Nuclear Education and Public Acceptance, V014T15A014, August 8–12, 2022
Publisher: American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Paper No: ICONE29-93796
... Abstract Radiation has the characteristics of being silent, colorless, odorless, invisible, and intangible. The public is deeply fearful and worried about radiation. Radiation has become “to mention the wolf’s name is to see the name”. Carrying out radiation science popularization...
