  1. Interactive simulation of environmental consequences of nuclear accidents.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    International Workshop on Real-time Computing of the Environmental Consequences of an Accident Release from a Nuclear Installation. Aronsborg (SWE), 1996/10/07.

    The code NACOS (Nuclear Accident COnsequence Simulation) has been developed to follow the consequences of radioactive releases.

    Atmospheric dispersion, plume depletion, doses, dose commitments, health effects and effects of countermeasures are computed.

    A twofold task is fulfilled : (1) training of decision makers ; (2) presentation of fast visual information in the case of a real accident.

    The program works as a simulator : various scenarios can be specified and results can directly be compared.

    Computations are carried out in one hour steps.

    There is a possibility to return to earlier phases and repeat the simulation under different conditions.

    In the short term case, intervention warnings are given, the actual decision being for the user.

    For the long term, countermeasure actions are assumed to be taken automatically at pre-set levels.

    The program works under the WINDOWS operating system.

    Results are displayed on maps, and/or in tables.
