RSAC is a tool used to calculate the effects of releasing radionuclides into the atmosphere.
Technology No. CW-23-52

RSAC is a tool used to calculate the effects of releasing radionuclides into the atmosphere. It calculates radiological dose consequences for workers and the public in accident analyses of INL/BEA nuclear facilities. Users can generate a list of fission products from reactor operation or a nuclear criticality event. RSAC-7 models the effects of cleanup systems and calculates the decay and growth of radionuclides during transport. Doses are calculated for inhalation, exposure to air, contact with the ground, ingestion, and exposure to gamma radiation. RSAC-7 is used by Nuclear Safety Analysts, Facility Managers, Radiological Engineers, and Design Engineers to evaluate accident conditions in emergency response scenarios, radiological sabotage events, and accident consequences. RSAC was developed at the INL in 1966 and has undergone revisions. The latest release, RSAC Version 7.2, was made available to the public in 2010 through RSICC.
