1. NAME AND TITLE
EXPRESS: Exact Preparedness Supporting System.
Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute, Ibaraki-ken, Japan, through the NEA Data Bank, Issy-les-Moulineaux, France.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran 77; VAX and IBM 3090.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
The emergency response supporting system EXPRESS (EXact PREparedness Supporting System) was developed to calculate real-time predictions of affected areas due to radioactivities discharged into the atmosphere from nuclear facilities.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
The computational models in EXPRESS are the mass-consistent wind field model (EXPRESS-I) and the particle dispersion model (EXPRESS-II) for atmospheric dispersions. The real-time ability of the code is obtained using a high-speed iteration method, MILUCR (Modified Incomplete Linear Unitary Conjugate Residual), in EXPRESS-I and a kernel density method in EXPRESS-II. EXPRESS-II employs a random walk model based on gradient-transfer theory.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
Execution times for the sample problems on a VAX 6000-420 were:
EX1 3 minutes 46 seconds
EX1S 3 minutes 37 seconds
EX2 1 minute 31 seconds
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
A minimum of 8 megabytes of disk storage is recommended by the author. The code was developed to run on Unix workstations. It has also run on FACOM, IBM 3090, and VAX systems.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
A Fortran 77 compiler is required. RSIC tested the codes on a VAX 6000-420 running VMS 5-5.2 and VAX Fortran-77 v.5-9.
