The risk model developed by Battelle to evaluate the risk of shipping nuclear materials is illustrated by describing its application to the risk assessment of a PuO sub 2 shipment by truck. It is planned to apply this model to the shipment of nonnuclear hazardous materials. Some of the data that will be needed for its application to nonnuclear materials is indicated in the discussion of PuO sub 2 truck shipment. (ERA citation 01:012595)
