Development of dose assessment code for accidental tritium releases; ACUTRI

Yokoyama, Sumi; Noguchi, Hiroshi; Kurosawa, Naohiro*

A computer code named ACUTRI has been developed to assess tritium doses due to inhalation to the general public. ACUTRI can calculate the radiological impact of tritium gas (HT) and tritiated water (HTO) released accidentally to the atmosphere. The models in this code consist of a tritium transfer model including the oxidation of HT to HTO and the reemission of HTO from soil to the atmosphere and a dose calculation model. The atmospheric dispersion of the primary HT and HTO plumes and secondary HTO plume, which is reemitted from soil to the atmosphere, is calculated by using the Gaussian plume model. In this calculation, it is possible to analyze statistically on meteorology in the same way as a conventional dose assessment method according to the meteorological guideline of the Nuclear Safety Commission of Japan. Tritium concentrations in air and their resultant doses were calculated using the ACUTRI code under some conditions. In order to validate the model, calculations were compared with experimental results.
