Abstract
X-ray spectra and outputs are computed based on three formulations of x-ray bremsstrahlung production by Kramers, Storm, and Birch and Marshall. Published, measured spectra compare favorable with Storm and Birch and Marshall. Measured outputs (mR/mAs at 100 cm) agree best with Storm. TLD measurements of x-ray exposure agree well with predictions made using Storm over a range of techniques. Rapid calculation of output for either single phase or three phase operation is possible using coefficients from a third order fit to the data based on Storm for 40 to 120 kV and 2 to 8 mm aluminum total filtration.
