Numerical simulation of the environmental dispersion of radioactive materials released from virtual nuclear accidents and evaluation of the public exposure are performed, by using the WSPEEDI-II system.
Students will be able to predict the environmental dispersion of radionuclides by nuclear accidents and its radiological consequence.
Students should understand radionuclide release by nuclear accidents, environmental dispersion, and biological effects. They should acquire the ability to simulate and predict the environmental dispersion of radionuclides and evaluate the public exposure by using the WSPEEDI-II system.
