Abstract
The dispersal of radioactive materials in a number of military scenarios has been modelled computationally. This work is part of an international intercomparison of computational capabiliteis under the auspices of Action Group 44 of The Technical Cooperation Program. The results presented herein were obtained with the Hazard Prediction and Assessment Capability (HPAC), designed by the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA). This sophisticated software can be used to quickly determine the extent of radiological hazard areas, requiring a relatively small quantity of information from the user. The potential of this software for applications such as pre-deployment preparation, or even pseudo-real-time hazard prediction with input from hand-held radiation detection equipment must be recognized.
