3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

HABIT is a package of computer codes designed to be used for the evaluation of control room habitability in the event of an accidental release of toxic chemicals or radioactive materials.

4. METHODS

Given information about the design of a nuclear power plant, a scenario for the release of toxic or radionuclides, and information about the air flows and protection systems of the control room, HABIT can be used to estimate the chemical exposure or radiological dose to control room personnel.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES

HABIT is an integrated package of several programs that previously needed to be run separately and required considerable user intervention. These are EXTRAN, CHEM, TACT95, FPFP2, and CONHAB. New input routines have been written for these routines using data input windows. These are designed for easy use when entering, reviewing, and revising the data. The programs can now be run in sequence as an integrated package. Improvements have been made in the computational methods used by some of the routines. The programs produce files containing ASCII tables of values and  output files that can readily be imported into a commercial spreadsheet to be graphed or for further computations.
