WELCOME TO RADTRAN/RADCAT
RADTRAN is a program and code for calculating the risks of transporting radioactive materials.
The first versions of the program, RADTRAN I and II, were developed for NUREG-0170 (USNRC,
1977), the first environmental impact statement on transportation of radioactive materials.
RADTRAN and its associated software have undergone a number of improvements and
advances consistent with improvements in computer technology.
