RSICC CODE PACKAGE CCC-507
1. NAME AND TITLE
SPEEDI: Code System for Real-Time Prediction of Radiation Dose to the Public Due to an Accidental Release from a Nuclear Power Plant.
Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute, Tokai-mura, Japan.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran 77; FACOM M-380 (C00507FM18000).
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
The suite of computer codes, SPEEDI, predicts the dose to the public from a plume released from a nuclear power plant. The main codes comprising SPEEDI are: WIND04, PRWDA, and CIDE. WIND04 calculates three-dimensional mass-conservative windfields. PRWDA calculates concentration distributions, and CIDE estimates the external and internal doses. These models can take into account the spatial and temporal variation of wind, variable topography, deposition and variable source intensity for use in real-time assessment. We recommend that you also review the emergency response supporting system CCC-661/ EXPRESS documentation.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
WIND04 uses a three-dimensional mass-consistent model to calculate windfields in complex terrain. By using windfields generated by WIND04, the PRWDA code, which employs a random-walk method to simulate a gradient-transfer theory numerically, predicts the spatial and temporal airborne concenetration. The CIDE code uses a cell-integrated dose model to calculate the external gamma dose from a randomly distributed radioactive cloud.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
On a FACOM VP-100, the WIND04 sample problem ran in 6 seconds. The PRWDA rpoblem required 36 seconds, and the CIDE problem ran in 9 seconds of CPU time.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
The software runs on FACOM M-380 and VP-100.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
The FACOM Fortran77/VP compiler was used under the OSIV/F4 MSP E20 V10L20 operating system. PRWDA uses the JAERI subroutine library to generate random numbers.
