3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The system of codes and data files implement an expansion of the impacts analysis methodology used during the development of the 10 CFR Part 61 rule to allow improved consideration of the costs and impacts of treatment and disposal of low-level radioactive waste that is close to or exceeds  Class C concentrations.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The modifications to the methodology of Part 61 principally include: (1) an update of the low-level radioactive waste source term, (2) consideration of additional alternative disposal technologies, (3) expansion of the methodology used to calculate disposal costs, (4) consideration of an additional exposure pathway involving direct human contact with disposed waste  due to a hypothetical drilling scenario, and (5) use of updated health physics analysis procedures (ICRP-30).

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

1. The diverse spectrum of low-level wastes are grouped into only a     few individual waste streams.
2. The regional projection is made for only four large regions.
3. The system cannot consider costs and impacts for all possible  licensees or possible waste processing technologies. Processing     techniques are meant to be representative only.
4. Transportation and operational impacts are calculated in a     simple manner.
5. Only a representative range of near-surface disposal facility     designs are considered in detail.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Each code requires approximately 10 - 26 minutes. Several are interactive, i.e., require user response to choices offered. An 8087 coprocessor will reduce running time.
CCC-0499/01
The test cases included in this package were executed by NEA-DB on an IBM PC/AT compatible computer. They require from 2 to 20 minutes.
