Abstract
A simplified method for calculation of the radiation protection factors afforded by armoured vehicles, called VPF for Vehicle Protection Factor, has been developed. VPF employs a table look-up of surface protection factors pre-calculated using ANISN, together with vehicle-specific geometry data to perform the calculation. Unlike more elaborate computational methods such as VCS and DACM, VPF is easy to use and quite user friendly. Further, VPF has been designed for use on microcomputers.
