Description/Abstract:
A PROGRAM IS PRESENTED TO COMPUTE FALLOUT FISSION PRODUCT ABSORPTION I N AN EXPANDING, COOLING, UNIFORM FIELD OF GAS AND FALLOUT PARTICLES WH ERE THE RATE OF FISSION PRODUCT ABSORPTION IS CONTROLLED BY FISSION PR ODUCT SURFACE CONCENTRATIONS AS GIVEN BY HENRY'S LAW CONSTANTS AND DIF FUSION OF THESE FISSION PRODUCTS INTO THE FALLOUT PARTICLES. THE CALCU LATIONS ARE MADE A NUCLIDE CHAIN AT A TIME, EMPLOYING NUCLEAR DEVICE A ND FISSION PRODUCT PARAMETERS. PROGRAM OUTPUT INCLUDES AVERAGE CONCENT RATION VERSUS PARTICLE SIZE FOR EACH ABSORBED FISSION PRODUCT AT A PRE SELECTED LOWER TEMPERATURE AND THE AMOUNT OF THAT FISSION PRODUCT IN T HE GAS PHASE, WITH AN OPTION FOR THE CALCULATION OF FISSION PRODUCT RADIAL PROFILES VERSUS PARTICLE SIZE. AS A DEMONSTRATION OF THIS MODEL , AN INITIAL COMPUTER STUDY OF FALLOUT FORMATION PHENOMENOLOGY IS PRES ENTED.
