User handbook for the program CARE.


Ehrlich,-H.G. The program CARE calculates the annual environmental exposure of complex nuclear installations. In the calculation, the real weather conditions and the measured release rates of the nuclides are taken into account. According to their location in the plant, the contributions of the time integrated pollutant concentrations of the individual emitters are superimposed at predefinable receiving points. In the conception of the model for calculating the resultant dose care was taken to ensure that the program is capable of treating both individual emissions and quasi-continuous emissions. The program CARE can therefore be used in the event of accidents. (orig.).
