Abstract:

An interactive computer model is described for the rapid calculation of gamma radiation doses to aircrews in hypothetical flights through nuclear debris clouds. The model is based on CASSANDRA, a U.S. army developed code for dust concentration calculations at loci through such a cloud. The present model computes local radiation dose integrals along a user-specified flight path. It is designed for efficient interactive operation on a Digital Equipment Corporation Model VAX 11780 computer. Originator-supplied keywords Radiation protection, Nuclear explosion, Radioactivity.
