Özet

Aim: The aim of this investigation was to measure the amount of gamma-decay of several building materials (brick and cement), raw materials (fly-ash and soil), interior coating materials (foam [used as a thermal insulator], water-based paints, solvent-based paints and phosphogypsum) from central Turkey, in terms of Bq kg(-1), and to calculate the biological damage caused by this radioactivity.
