A mathematical model and the resultant analytical solutions for calculation of transient tritium concentrations in room air and in solid surfaces are presented. Although more elaborate models exist for describing the behaviour of tritium released into enclosures, a simpler approach was considered adequate for a preliminary assessment of situations arising at JET. A comparison with experimental data and several cases of interest are also presented. These preliminary checks have confirmed that the basic approach is sound. Further checks and refinement may be required to cover the full range of practical situations.
