Abstract
A comparison is made between theoretical calculations and experimental measurements of neutron and gamma-ray kermas, both free-field and in-and-on an anthropomorphic phantom at the NATO standard reference point, 400 m from the core at the Nuclear Effects Directorate, Aberdeen Proving Ground, US. Computer calculations employed the VCS code. Experimental measurements used a variety of spectroscopic and dosimetric devices including the novel bubble spectrometer and dosimeter. Agreement between theory and experiment is generally very good, when appropriate environmental corrections are made to the theory.
