3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The RESRAD-BUILD computer code is a pathway analysis model designed to evaluate the potential radiological dose incurred by an individual who works or lives in a building contaminated with radioactive material.

top ]
4. METHODS

The transport of radioactive material inside the building from one compartment to another is calculated with an indoor air quality model. The air quality models considers the transport of radioactive dust particulates and radon progeny due to air exchange, deposition and resuspension, and radioactive decay and ingrowth.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

A single run of the RESRAD-BUILD code can model a building with up to: three compartments, 10 distinct source geometries, and 10 receptor locations.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

A shielding material can be specified between each source-receptor pair for external gamma dose calculations.

11. HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS

An IBM or IBM-compatible microcomputer with a 3.1 or higher disk operating system, a hard disk drive, and approximately 400 kilobytes of free memory are required to run the code. A printer capable of 132 column output is desirable. A mathematical coprocessor, a color monitor, and a mouse are optional, but recommended; however, a mouse may not work with all monitor/graphics cards used in IBM or clone configurations.

14. OTHER PROGRAMMING OR OPERATING INFORMATION OR RESTRICTIONS

Six exposure pathways are considered in the RESRAD-BUILDcode:

  1. external exposure directly from the source;

  2. external exposure to materials deposited on the floor;

  3. external exposure due to air submersion;

  4. inhalation of airborne radioactive particulates;

  5. inhalation of aerosol indoor radon progeny;

  6. inadvertent ingestion of radioactive material, either directly from the sources or from materials deposited on the surfaces of the building compartments.
