Title: Use of CAP88 at Department of Energy Sites

The U.S. Department of Energy is committed to protecting the public and environment against undue risk from radiation associated with radiological activities conducted under its control. Some U.S. Department of Energy Site activities result in emissions of radioactive materials to the air. CAP88 codes are used to model these emissions and the subsequent maximum estimated dose to a member of the public in the vicinity of the U.S. Department of Energy Site. This paper reviews the use of the CAP88 code at the variety of U.S. Department of Energy sites that use it for compliance reporting under 40 CFR Part 61, Subpart H.
