English term or phrase: is ten halving-thicknesses of packed dirt
Come tradurreste il passaggio "is ten halving-thicknesses of packed dirt"?

"Shielding reduces the intensity of radiation exponentially depending on the thickness. This means when added thicknesses are used, the shielding multiplies. For example, a practical shield in a fallout shelter is ten halving-thicknesses of packed dirt, which is 90 cm (3 ft) of dirt."

Italian translation:dieci spessori di dimezzamento di terriccio compresso
Explanation:
Uno spessore di dimezzamento è quello spessore che dimezza la radiazione passante, vedi ad es. www.irccsdebellis.it/html/dipuninf/fisica/lezioni/lezione10... .

Dieci spessori dovrebbero quindi ridurre la radiazione a circa un millesimo.
