3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

UCBNE25 estimates the maximum concentration of nuclides occuring during the migration of three- member radionuclide chains in geologic media without axial dispersion. Unlike other migration codes, the release rate in UCBNE25 is the independent variable, and time is the dependent variable. The extrema in concentrations are determined without having to calculate the entire concentration history. The program assumes one-dimensional water transport and sorption equilibrium for the nuclides in the soil and in the water. The water velocity is held constant, and the leach times are smaller than the half-lives of the nuclides involved. UCBNE25 calculates for each nuclide the time of the maxima at a specified position, the maximum dimensionless concentration, the corresponding water dilution rate,  and the contamination time for that position. The closed form solutions can be easily checked by hand, making it a useful calibration tool for other codes.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The method concentrates on the estimation of the extrema positions in space at a fixed time and their occurrence  at a fixed position.
