Following the recent restart of operations at the Y-12 Plant, the Radiological Control Organization (RCO) observed that the enriched uranium exposures appeared to involve insoluble rather than soluble uranium that presumably characterized most earlier Y-12 operations. These observations necessitated changes in the...

This report serves as a user’s manual for the first release of the Dose and Risk Calculation software, DCAL. DCAL consists of a series of computational modules, driven in either an interactive or a batch mode, for the computation of dose and risk coefficients. The system includes extensive libraries of biokinetic...

This report is the seventh volume of a series in which specific absorbed fractions ( ’s) in various organs of the body ("target organs") from sources of monoenergetic photons in various other organs ("source organs") are tabulated. The first volume (ORNL/TM-8381:Vol. 1) outlines various methods used to compute the...

This report is the second volume of a series in which specific absorbed fractions ( ’s) in various organs of the body ("target organs") from sources of monoenergetic photons in various other organs ("source organs") are tabulated. This volume outlines various methods used to compute the -values and describes how...

A toolbox of radiological data has been assembled to provide users access to the physical, chemical, anatomical, physiological and mathematical data relevant to the radiation protection of workers and member of the public. The software runs on a PC and provides users, through a single graphical interface, quick...
