Rapid and reliable predictions of the radiological consequences of accidents as an aid to decisions on countermeasures
The rapid and reliable assessment of the potential radiological consequences of an accident at a nuclear installation is an essential input to timely decisions on the effective introduction of countermeasures. There have been considerable improvements over the past decade or so in the methods used for such assessments and, in particular, in the development of computerised systems. The need for such systems is described, together with their current state of development and possible future trends. This topic has featured prominently within the CEC's Radiation Protection Research Programme and is likely to do so in the foreseeable future. The main features of this research, its achievements to date and future directions are described.
