Conference paper


The dispersion of the released radionuclides and corresponding exposed doses are calculated using Gaussian-Puff model for the emergency response The RADCON (RADiological CONsequence analysis) version 3.0, newly developed, is capable of simulating emergency situation by considering continuous washout phenomena, and provide a function of effective emergency planning.

The official regulatory institute, KINS (Korea Institute of Nuclear Safety), has been authorized and developing Computerized technical Advisory system for the Radiological Emergency preparedness (CARE).

In this paper, in line with the CARE system, we presented the result of a modularized intermediate-level emergency dose asessment computer code which is operatable on PC. The source files are coded by using C language in order to increase the compatibility with the other computer systems. The developed code is modularized to adjust the functions and characteristics of each module for easy understanding and further modification of the code.
