MACCS versus GENII: Code comparison

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The computer codes GENII and MACCS, utilized for computing radiation doses, are discussed. The codes are compared from input from the source term from LANL file HW101-SY.INP, run dated 2/19/91. The release of radionuclides was assumed to be from a point source at ground level with a 10 minute release duration.Doses were calculated at a distance of 660 meters with an exposure duration of 2 hours. It was found that the 2 codes differed in how wind direction was treated.
