Abstract
The application of GEANT4 for simulating a Radiation Exposure Device (RED) scenario has been studied. The application tools for simulating the radioactive source, decay processes, radiation transport, interactions with passengers at a bus stop, and all the other supporting classes have been implemented and tested. To assist running jobs and analyzing data, several bash scripts and ROOT macros have been developed for this study. Beyond the RED application, the framework and tools show a promising extensibility to more complex applications.
