  1. Indoor cigarette smoking : Uranium contents and carrier of indoor radon products.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    International Conference on Nuclear Tracks in Solids. Cairo, EGY, 1996/09/01.

    The effect of cigarette smoking inside a room on indoor radon daughters concentration has been studied experimentally.

    As a result of indoor smoking, the number of aerosol particles inside a room has increased up to 600 times from 150 particles per cm3.

    Injecting a radon source inside a room which contained cigarettes smoke showed a reduction in the plate out of radon daughters to the walls'surfaces and at the same time increased their concentration in indoor air as a result of their attachment to the cigarette smoke particles.

    These airborne particles would be inhaled by everyone inside the room, regardless of whether he/she is smoking or not.

    Using a mixing fan in a clean and closed room reduced the activity of airborne radon daughters to a low level value by increasing their plate out to the inside room surfaces and other surfaces in the room.

    The plate out was reduced dramatically by indoor cigarette smoking.

    Plate out of radon daughters on fan blades will be always more than the plate out on wall's surfaces.

    The distribution of plate out on fan blades was not uniform, while plate out on the six sides of room surfaces was almost uniform.

    The uranium distribution on the surfaces of the detectors attached to the pellets formed of fresh tobacco, tobacco ash and filter paper (used to withdraw cigarette smoke) showed non-uniform distribution of fission fragments and mostly as track clusters like sunburst shape. (...)
