Reducing the Weight of an X-ray Cassette
Groby Industries needs to redesign the faceplates of x-ray cassettes in order to reduce
their weight. The new cassette must not greatly exceed the thickness of the current design, it
must maintain the same

Polymer Hardening Analysis
In a preliminary study of polymer hardening, 12m thick polypropylene films were
irradiated by Mega-Measurements for WW Polymers. It was expected that the boron on the
films would absorb a neutron and emit an alpha parti
