RESRAD Training

RESRAD-ONSITE, RESRAD-OFFSITE, and RESRAD-BUILD

March 13-17, 2023 – Lemont, IL

$1750 before January 13, 2023; $1850 after January 13, 2023

This training workshop provides technical personnel and managers with an overview, history, calculation methodology, input parameter requirements, and application of the RESRAD Family of Codes, including RESRAD-ONSITE, RESRAD-OFFSITE and RESRAD-BUILD analysis. Both deterministic and probabilistic dose analysis techniques and special features such as sensitivity analysis as well as code verification and validation will be discussed. Interactive computer demonstrations guide the participants through data input and output steps. Instructor support helps the students complete the hands-on problem solving sessions throughout the workshop. Training materials include presentation handouts, user's manual, benchmarking report, and problem workbook. All participants after successful completion of the training course will receive training certificates from Argonne.

Registration will open in late October 2022.

RESRAD-BIOTA, RESRAD-RDD, and Advanced RESRAD-ONSITE, RESRAD-OFFSITE, & RESRAD-BUILD

March 20-24, 2023 – Lemont, IL

$1750 before January 13, 2023; $1850 after January 13, 2023

The first half of the workshop covers two RESRAD family of codes. The first one, RESRAD-BIOTA, is dealing with evaluation of radiological dose to animals and plants. The second one is the RESRAD-RDD code, which is designed for emergency response to nuclear incidents. The second half of the workshop explores advanced topics and applications of the RESRAD-ONSITE, RESRAD-OFFSITE, and RESRAD-BUILD codes. (It is highly recommended that attendees take the regular RESRAD-ONSITE, RESRAD-OFFSITE, and RESRAD-BUILD training course before taking this advanced course.) Interactive computer demonstrations guide the participants through data input and result analysis. Instructor support helps the students complete the hands-on problem-solving sessions throughout the workshop. Training materials include presentation handouts, user's manual, benchmarking report, and problem workbook. All participants after successful completion of the training course will receive training certificates from Argonne.

Registration will open in late October 2022.

Discount for Combined Registration

A $200 discount for a single-participant combined registration for both training courses is available before January 13, 2023. When registering, select both training courses, and enter the discount code BothTC on the Order Summary page.

Sponsoring a Workshop

Course Description: This five-day training workshop provides technical personnel and managers with an overview, history, calculation methodology, input parameter requirements, and application of the RESRAD-ONSITE, RESRAD-OFFSITE, and RESRAD-BUILD codes. RESRAD-OFFSITE code is an extension of the RESRAD-ONSITE code. The Gaussian plume air dispersion and groundwater radionuclide transport model will be presented as well as the off-site accumulation of radionuclides in soils and surface water body. RESRAD-BUILD evaluates indoor building contamination. Both deterministic and probabilistic dose analysis techniques and special features such as sensitivity analysis as well as code verification and validation will be discussed. Interactive computer demonstrations guide the participants through data input and output steps. Instructor support helps the students complete the hands-on problem solving sessions throughout the workshop. Training materials include presentation handouts, user's manual, benchmarking report, and problem workbook. All participants after successful completion of the training course will receive RESRAD-ONSITE, RESRAD-OFFSITE, and RESRAD-BUILD Training Certificates from Argonne.

Sponsoring a workshop requires 10-12 IBM-PC compatible computers and a meeting space. Workshops can be taught to groups of 10 to 25 participants, preferably two per computer. For information about sponsoring a workshop, please contact Charley Yu at 630-252-5589 or send email to [email protected]
