Neutron and gamma dose rate calculations were carried out around horizontal beam tube no. 5 at the Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI) TRIGA Mark II research reactor. Results were compared to the experimental measurements in order to verify the computation model. In addition, another set of calculations and measurements was carried out, where an additional shield made out of concrete and paraffin was installed. With that configuration, we were able to study neutron and gamma scattering.
