3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

COMIDA estimates radionuclide concentrations in agricultural food products following an acute fallout event. This dynamic food chain model will be implemented in  the new DOE version of the MELCOR Accident Consequence Code System (MACCS2).

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

COMIDA uses a fourth order Runge-Kutta solver (Press et al., 1986) with adoptive stepsize control to estimate yearly harvest concentrations for five human crop types (Bq kg-1 crop per Bq m-2 deposited) and integrated concentrations for four animal products (Bq d kg-1 animal product per Bq m-2) for a unit deposition that occurs on any user-specified day of the year. COMIDA is structurally very similar to the PATHWAY model developed by Whicker and Kirchner (1987) and includes the same seasonal transport processes and discrete events for soil and vegetation compartments.  Animal product assimilation is modeled using simpler equilibrium models. Differential transport and ingrowth of up to three radioactive progeny (the sample input problems include progeny for 93Mo and 93Nb) are also evaluated,

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Implementations on other platforms requires modification of the source to reference a
comparable TIMER subroutine library function call.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The approximate run time for each of the four included sample problems was 24 seconds on a Northgate 486/66.
