Title: A computer program for simulating the atmospheric dispersion of UF/sub 6/ and other reactive gases having positive, neutral, or negative buoyancy

Abstract

This report describes a mathematical model which was developed to simulate the atmospheric dispersion of chemically reactive gases that may be neutrally buoyant, positively buoyant, or negatively buoyant with respect to the ambient air. Emphasis is on materials used at uranium enrichment facilities, particularly uranium hexafluoride and its hydrolysis products. The report discusses the mathematical principles of the model, the chemical and physical properties used in the model, the computer program which was developed to perform the calculations, and the iterative techniques used in the model. Descriptions of the computer program are given as appendices. 41 refs., 18 figs., 27 tabs.
