Transform Prompt Effects Methodology

Adding ORNL’s DELFIC to SNL’s SHARC

Problem Statement

Advance Sandia National Laboratories' (SNL) SHARC by transitioning the fallout model from AIRRAD to ORNL’s DELFIC and develop a source term for power and research reactor fuels for radiological dispersion scenarios.

Source term GUI for power and research reactors.

Technical Approach

Integrate DELFIC with its dynamic cloud rise & radionuclide fractionation into SHARC. Modify DELFIC for deeper depths of burst. Assemble database of irradiation parameters for power and research reactors. Create a simple GUI to provide spent nuclear fuel source term isotopics and amounts.

Benefit

Increase the capabilities of SHARC for CM and JTOT using existing ORNL models.
