Determination of 131I based dose equivalents for emissions of short-lived iodine isotopes

  • L. S. Petrina


The coefficients required for evaluating the inhalation dose from short-live iodine isotopes entering the human body during a radiation accident associated with a spontaneous chain reaction are validated computationally. Such coefficients make it possible to reduce the effect of a collection of iodine isotopes to that of an equivalent amount of 131I. The dose inhalation load from an iodine emission aerosol cloud and the site contamination with 131I are evaluated for a spontaneous chain reaction in systems consisting of enriched metallic uranium with 1019 fissions with no localizing facilities present.
