  • The report describes the PC Version of the PRESTO-EPA-POP Operating System. This is one of a family of PRESTO-EPA models that can be used to calculate the potential fatal health effects and serious genetic effects for the general population downstream of a low-level radioactive waste (LLW) disposal site. The model is also considered to be suitable for the initial screening of candidate LLW disposal sites.
  • Presto is a Lagrangian, three-dimensional explicit, transient dynamics code for the analysis of solids subjected to large, suddenly applied loads. Presto is designed for problems with large deformations, nonlinear material behavior, and contact. There is a versatile element library incorporating both continuum and structural elements. The code is designed for a parallel computing environment. This document describes the input for the code that gives users access to all of the current functionality in the code. Presto is built in an environment that allows it to be coupled with other engineering analysis codes. The input structure for the code, which usesmore » a concept called scope, reflects the fact that Presto can be used in a coupled environment. This guide describes the scope concept and the input from the outermost to the innermost input scopes. Within a given scope, the descriptions of input commands are grouped based on code functionality. For example, all material input command lines are described in a section of the user's guide for all of the material models in the code.« less
  • An updated version of the Ozone Isopleth Plotting Program was developed for use with EKMA to calculate emission reductions needed to achieve the air-quality standard for ozone. The program, called OZIPM-IV (Ozone Isopleth Plotting with Optional Mechanisms - Version IV), contains the new Carbon-Bond Mechanism-IV (CBM-IV). In addition to containing a new mechanism, the OZIPM-IV expands on earlier versions of the code by providing a wider compatibility between computers, an improved isopleth plotting package, expanded user interaction with control-strategy calculations and a new option for determining credits for reductions in carbon monoxide emissions. Volume 1 of the report serves asmore » the User's Manual for OZIPM-IV. Volume 2 contains the listing of the FORTRAN computer code.« less
  • This volume contains an explanation of how to use the Freight Network Equilibrium Model, Version 4.1 (FNEM-4.1). It does not, however, contain any explanation of the model's theoretical basis, which is covered in Volume I, or of the use of preprocessor programs to prepare the data files, which is covered in Volume III. The User's Guide (Sec. 3 of this volume) includes thorough descriptions of all necessary input data, as well as an interpretation of the output. A small, but comprehensive, test problem is used to illustrate nearly all features of the model and to provide specific examples of themore » input/output. The Programmer's Guide (Sec. 4) is intended for use by the systems professional. The overall program logic of FNEM-4.1 is outlined, and for each subroutine the argument list, calling sequence, purpose, and method are summarized. Important variables and arrays are defined, error messages are discussed, and listings of actual job control language are presented.« less
  • The Department of Energy Data Exchange Format (DOEDEF) Translator Module Pool A (hereafter referred to as the ''pool'') is intended to reduce the manpower required to rewrite the DOEDEF translator software already in existence throughout the Department of Energy Nuclear Weapons Complex (DOE NWC). Each portion of the DOEDEF exchange system and therefore each site's DOEDEF translator software must be rewritten during the transition from Phase 1.0 to Phase 1.5 of DOEDEF. By providing a pool, the effort required to move from Phase 1.0 to Phase 1.5 can be reduced throughout the NWC. 7 refs.
