CALCULATION OF RELEASES OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS IN GASEOUS EFFLUENTS FROM NUCLEAR-POWERED MERCHANT SHIPS (NMS-GEFF CODE)

The Intergovernmental Maritime Consultative Organization (IMCO) is currently preparing guidelines concerning the safety of nuclear-powered merchant ships. An important aspect of these guidelines is the determination of the releases of radioactive material in effluents from these ships and the control exercised by the ships over these releases. To provide a method for the determination of these releases, the NRC staff has developed a computerized model, the NMS-GEFF Code, which is described in the following chapters. The NMS-GEFF Code calculates releases of radioactive material in gaseous effluents for nuclear-powered merchant ships using pressurized water reactors.
