The study confirms the impact of aluminum plates added in 5-10 MeV electron irradiation method on dose uniformity of a spherical object. It was found that the maximum dose uniformity throughout a spherical volume can be achieved in computer simulation by varying the initial electron energy from 5 to 10 MeV and modifying the thickness of aluminum plate from 3 to 5 mm.
