Abstract:

This report is a summary overview of the basic features and differences among the major radioactive fallout models and computer codes that are either in current use or that form the basis for more contemporary codes and other computational tools. The DELFIC, WSEG-10, KDFOC2, SEER3, and DNAF-1 codes and the EM-1 model are addressed. The review is based only on the information that is available in the general body of literature. This report describes the fallout process, gives an overview of each codemodel, summarizes how each code model handles the basic fallout parameters initial cloud, particle distributions, fall mechanics, total activity and activity to dose rate conversion, and transport, cites the literature references used, and provides an annotated bibliography for other fallout code literature that was not cited. Nuclear weapons, Radiation, Radioactivity, Fallout, DELFIC, WSEG, Nuclear weapon effects, KDFOC, SEER, DNAF, EM-1.
