Abstract:

System aspects of large scale decontamination of populated areas were studied to determine optimal decontamination procedures for small scale areas. Simple techniques have been demonstrated that a populated area of 700,000 people exposed to fallout from a 1 MT attack outside of the area can be restored in roughly 1 month. Analysis was conducted of scheduling the entry of operators into a radioactive field. Techniques similar to dynamic programming were applied, with the result that for certain circumstances specific optimal start times can be determined. Computational procedures and computer programs have been evolved for testing procedures in simulated environments. Substantial analysis was performed on the shielding effect of structures in a target area.
