Class Information
Number: 376/287
Name: Induced nuclear reactions: processes, systems, and elements > Reactor protection or damage prevention > Shield or barrier between radiation or heat source and object to be protected (e.g., insulation, thermal shield)
Description: Subject matter wherein the undesired effect (a) is the presence of radiation in a given area which undesired effect is minimized by providing means to attenuate the radiation prior to its entry into said area, or (b) to attenuate the egress of material into the area to be protected.
