This report, in three volumes, describes work carried out on the development of a radioactive waste package assay facility for cemented 500 litre intermediate level waste drums. Volume 3 deals with the data-processing aspects of the assay facility. It introduces the need for a mathematical model of the assay process and develops a deterministic model which could be tested using experimental data from Harwell Laboratory. Relevant nuclear reactions are identified. Full implementation of the model was not possible within the scope of the Harwell experimental work, although calculations suggested that the model behaved as predicted by theory.
