1. NAME AND TITLE
IMPACTS-BRC 2.1: Analyses of Potential Radiological Impacts.
Sandia National Labs., Albuquerque, NM through the Energy Science and Technology Software Center, Oak Ridge, TN.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
FORTRAN 77; IBM PC (C00666IBMPC00).
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
IMPACTS-BRC2.1 is a generic radiological assessment code that allows calculation of potential impacts to maximum individuals, waste disposal workers, and the general population resulting from exemption of very low-level radioactive wastes from regulatory control. The code allows calculations to be made of human exposure to the waste by many pathways and exposure scenarios.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
Impacts to individuals and populations are calculated using analytical expressions for the migration of radionuclides along all pathways. The results of these analyses are summed to produce the total impact.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
Typical running time is a function of the computer used. The sample problem requires less than 5 minutes on an IBM PC.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
640K bytes. A math co-processor and fixed disk drive are recommended but not required. Because portions of the output are printed as 128-character lines, a printer with the capacity to handle lines of this length is useful.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
DOS 2.1 or higher, however will not run with DOS 3.2. Programs will run in DOS mode of Windows 95.
