Simulation of Atmospheric Dispersion of a Radioactive Plume Including Sensible Heat

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A postulated fire scenario in a Savannah River Site (SRS) laboratory facility could result in release of radioactive materials to the environment.The Technology Center is located in the general proximity of the site boundary.The relatively short distance to potential off- site receptors makes it important to consider the effects of plume rise and the effects of the sensible heat of the escaping combustion products. The potential consequences from the airborne release are calculated with the MACCS, Version 1.5.11.1, computer code. Calculation of atmospheric dispersion without consideration of plume rise results in a monotonically decreasing dose response. When the plume rise ... continued below

Description

A postulated fire scenario in a Savannah River Site (SRS) laboratory facility could result in release of radioactive materials to the environment.The Technology Center is located in the general proximity of the site boundary.The relatively short distance to potential off- site receptors makes it important to consider the effects of plume rise and the effects of the sensible heat of the escaping combustion products. The potential consequences from the airborne release are calculated with the MACCS, Version 1.5.11.1, computer code. Calculation of atmospheric dispersion without consideration of plume rise results in a monotonically decreasing dose response. When the plume rise is modeled in the dose calculation, the results show that the cloud touchdown point and the location of highest off-site dose do not follow a monotonically decreasing pattern.
