Quality assurance of computational tools for dosimetry

Objective

Computational tools, especially transport codes, are essential for radiation dosimetry. Their quality is generally high,but many casual users do not exploit the full potential of these codes, treat them as black boxes and are prone to erroneous results. These users are seldom familiar with sensitivity analysis and uncertainty assessment, which are required for a quality assured use of codes.The Concerted Action (12 members from universities and research institutions in 5 countries) will invite casual users to participate in an Intercomparison Study(IS). We distribute Bench Mark problems, evaluate and discuss the returns with the participants and summarise the IS in a report. In addition, we will compile and publish reports on Advanced Computational Tools (AT) and Sensitivity Analysis and Uncertainty Assessment (SA). These reports will provide theoretical background and examples of practical applications for AT and SA.
