Abstract:

Previous investigations on the analysis, planning, and scheduling of radiological recovery operations have recognized and identified many related and important problem areas. The report treats several of these problems and derives methods and analytical expressions appropriate to their solution. Procedures are developed for estimating decontamination start times with minimum total exposure to groups of people engaged in either decontamination or facility operations. Methods of forecasting exposure doses to decontamination crews and facility operator crews are revised, to simplify evaluation of the effect of prior and concurrent decontamination operations on the effective residual number for a prescribed postattack routine. A technique is devised for relating the size of decontamination organizations to the dimensions of the area to be decontaminated and the surviving populations in urban areas. The final problem explored is the effect of increased size and number of decontamination crews on the decontamination completion time.
