Of course, still alpha so not fit for production work, but it may be worth taking a look.

Re: Formulas for Cylindrical Source

You are better off posting this request on one of the SCI.Nuclear or ALT.Nuclear public newsgroups. Better yet, pick up an intro book on shielding and the formulas should be there.
