Abstract : A FORTRAN II program has been written to compute the degradation undergone by a theoretical beta spectrum in emerging from a spherical particle of high density, high Z material. Inputs to the program are the point source (or undegraded) beta spectrum and the coefficients of a degradation function. Outputs from the program are the degraded spectrum and its expected and median energies. Data are presented for degradation of beta spectra originating within uranium carbide particles. (Author)
