Absorbed dose of secondary neutrons from galactic cosmic rays inside the International Space Station
Getselev, I., et al. (2004). "Absorbed dose of secondary neutrons from galactic cosmic rays inside the International Space Station." Adv Space Res 34 6: 1429-32
In this paper, we present the results of Monte-Carlo simulations of the flux and energy spectra of neutrons generated as a result of galactic cosmic ray proton interactions with the material of International Space Station (ISS) inside Zvezda Service Module, the Airlock between Russian and USA segments and one of Russian Research Modules for a full configuration of ISS. Calculations were made for ISS orbit for the energy ranges <10 and >10 MeV for both maximum and minimum of solar activity. To test the accuracy of the calculations the same simulations were made for MIR orbital station and for CORONAS-I satellite and compared with the results of measurements. Calculated and measured fluxes are in reasonable agreement.
