Abstract : The data obtained from the radiation effects monitoring system employed at Godiva II, Triga, and KEWB on a previous contract were reduced and analyzed. On the basis of plots of the experimental data obtained from the original magnetic tape records, an attempt was made to develop a suitable phenomenological expression for the effects of a pulsed nuclear envir nment on the characteristics of the selected semi-conductor devices tested. Expressions were derived that appeared to satisfy the conditions upon the analysis of the experimental data. When subjecte to mathematical reduction the expressions proved to be plausible from the standpoint of the physics involved. The results were entirely satisfactory on the basis of a phenomenological model. (Author)
