The concept of decontamination and dose control DDC models is described and oriented with respect to the primary components of an overall recovery model system. Because DDC models belong to the countermeasure models subsystem, the interacting roles among countermeasure models are presented. Functional relationships among the countermeasure subsystem and other subsystems required to define a workable recovery model system are indicated. A general outline of a DDC model system reveals the essential model elements and demonstrates that the DDC model is expected to evaluate radiological situations, generate radiological recovery procedures, and provide cost and effectiveness data. The status of the principal environmental and operational inputs and sources is discussed, pertinent input parameters are identified, and the ranges of their values are summarized.
