3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

RBD computes the quantity of a
radionuclide taken into the body by inhalation, ingestion or uptake  from a wound based on measurements of the retained activity in the body or its appearance in excreta; i.e., bioassay measurements. RBD  evaluates both acute and chronic intakes. The package includes database programs for management of the bioassay data and the estimated intakes and radiation doses. Graphical inspection of the data and the computed response are available in the interactive mode.
Data for the computation of intake and committed dose exists for the following 42 nuclides:
H-3   , C-11  , C-14  , Na-22 , Na-24 , P-32  , Co-57 , Co-58 ,
Co-60 , Ni-63 , Sr-85 , Sr-89 , Sr-90 , Tc-99 , Tc-99m, I-125 ,
I-129 , I-131 , I-135 , Cs-134, Cs-137, Pm-147, Eu-152, Eu-154,
Eu-155, Tl-201, Ra-226, Ra-228, Th-228, Th-232, U-234 , U-235 ,
U-236 , U-238 , U-nat , Pu-238, Pu-239, Pu-241, Am-241, Cm-242,
Cm-244, Cf-252

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Estimates of intake are derived by convolution  of biological response functions in the manner outlined in Publication 54 of the International Commission on Radiological Protection. Dose estimates are derived from the estimated intake using dose coefficients from Federal Guidance Report 11 (DLC-0167: ZZ-FGR-DOSE). Only the initial activity at the wound site is evaluated; i.e. no dose estimates are provided. See ORNL/TM-11858 for details.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM:  None noted.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

RBD can be run in either interactive or batch mode. Run times in batch mode depend upon the number of bioassay measurements, the nature of the intake (acute vs. chronic), and the  number of individuals. On a 486/33 PC the calculations are typically a few seconds per individual. However, the computations for an individual with a lifetime set of bioassay data (an assumed chronic  exposure) can approach several minutes.
CCC-0632/01
The RBD package was installed and tested at the NEA-DB  on an PC Brett with a Pentium processor of 75 MHz. The package is menu-driven; the execution of the different programs and utilities is selected from the menus and can be performed either interactively or in batch mode. The execution times vary from a few tenths of seconds to a few seconds.

11. MACHINE REQUIREMENTS

IBM PC or compatible with less than 4 MB of disk space are required; however, the space requirements will increase depending on the extent of the bioassay data.
CCC-0632/01
The RBD package was tested at the NEA/DB on a PC Brett  (Pentium processor of 75 MHz) with a base memory of 640 Kbyte and extended memory of 16 Mbyte. PROGRAM SIZE: The entire RBD package software requires about 3.2 MByte of disk space at installation time, of which about 2.5 Mbyte are allocated to the executable files. The size of the nuclides data file NUCLIDE.BIN is 448 Kbyte.  Additional space must be provided for the files created by RBD.

13. OPERATING SYSTEM UNDER WHICH PROGRAM IS EXECUTED

RBD was designed  for use on PC's running DOS. The package consists of database and computational programs interconnected by a menuing program. The database programs were developed using Clipper (summer '87 version), the menu program and other user interface routines were written in MS BASIC using the MS PDS v7.1, and all computational programs were  written using MS FORTRAN v5.1.
CCC-0632/01
The main programs and utilities of the package RBD have been executed in a PC Brett with a Pentium processor at 75 MHz, running MS-DOS 6.2
