Safety is one of the most critical issues in any test. The flexural test is a significant one to obtain material specifications. In this paper, a standard sample dose rate was calculated for the graphite flexural test in Tehran research reactor. Using different standards, the dose was computed at different distances and two periods of radiation, 15-40 days. Our calculations were performed with the ORIGEN and MCNPX codes. The impurity amounts of the material were measured by two methods of X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) and Inductively Coupled Plasma, Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES). The obtained results show that the Claiborne & Trubey standard is more stringent than other standards, and it has less than 2 μSv/h dose with the observance of 100cm distance and 20 days after irradiation. Moreover, calculations of the transfer chamber indicate that there is no limitation for the transport of the samples. Finally, it can be concluded that the considered method of this research can be used also for other materials at the reactor core.
