Dose rate modeling and post irradiation measurements of the Isotope Production Facility beamline, at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) accelerator, have determined that a radiation shielding shutter is required to protect personnel from shine from irradiated targets for routine beam tunnel entries. This paper will describe radiation dose modeling, shielding calculations and the failsafe mechanical shutter design.
