Abstract : A thorough study of the ceiling shine problem was made. Ceiling shine is defined as that contribution to the radiation dose rate in a protective structure resulting from fallout radiation entering the structure through apertures in vertical walls and scattering downward from the ceiling. A systematic analytical analysis of this problem, verified experimentally, resulted in a set of design curves. These curves yield the ceiling shine reduction factor in any concrete structure as a function of building dimensions, size and location of apertures, and detector location. (Author)
