1. NAME AND TITLE
DINT-YAEC: Evaluator of I1 and I2 Integrals as Used in Long-Term External Gamma-Ray
Doses from Routine Atmospheric Releases.
Yankee Atomic Electric Company, Westborough, Massachusetts.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
FORTRAN IV; IBM 360/370 and CDC.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
The gamma-ray dose in air from a sector-averaged plume may be expressed as a product of several
factors multiplied by a sum of two attenuation integrals: I1 and I2. The I1 function is an integration of
a Gaussian function multiplied by the E1 exponential integral. The I2 function is an integration of a
Gaussian function multiplied by an exponential.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
The integrals are evaluated numerically.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
Double precision is required for IBM machines.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
DINT is meant to be used as a subroutine. Typical CDC running time is a few msecs per call.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
DINT is operable on an IBM 360/370 or a CDC computer.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
A FORTRAN IV compiler is required.
