Title: Turbo FRMAC 2016 Version 7.1.0

Abstract

The Turbo FRMAC (TF) software program is the software implementation of the science and methodologies utilized in the Federal Radiological Monitoring and Assessment Center (FRMAC). The software automates the calculations described in volumes 1 of "The Federal Manual for Assessing Environmental Data during a Radiological Emergency" (2015 version). In the event of the intentional or accidental release of radioactive material, the software is used to guide and govern the response of the Federal, State, Local, and Tribal governments. The manual, upon which the software is based, is unclassified and freely available on the Internet.

The manual upon which the software is based is unclassified and freely available on the Internet. TF takes values generated by field samples or computer dispersion models and assesses the data in a way which is meaningful to a decision maker at a radiological emergency; such as, do radiation value exceed city, state, or federal limits; should the crops be destroyed ormore » can they be utilized; do residents need to be evacuated, sheltered in place, or should another action taken. The software also uses formulas generated by the EPA, FDA, and other federal agencies to generate field observable values specific to the radiological event that can be used to determine where regulatory limit values are exceeded. In addition to these calculatons, TF calculates values which indicate how long an emergency worker can work in the contaminated area during a radiological emergency, the dose received from drinking contaminated water or milk, the dose from eating contaminated food, the dose expected down or upwind of a given field sample, along with a significant number of other similar radiological health values.« less
