Abstract

Thermal and fast neutrons were measured inside the West Zone II building on Ito Campus for the assessment of terrestrial neutrons in a stand alone concrete building. Ratios of count rate of thermal neutrons to that of fast neutrons were almost constant inside the building. The contribution of fast neutrons across outside wall has been discussed. A simple method to estimate the neutron flux near the outside wall has been proposed.
