Abstract : American Research Corporation has developed a computer program to calculate beta radiation dosages to tissue incurred from contact with radioactive fallout particles containing mixed fission products. Versions of the Beta Radiation Dosage Program have been prepared for the CDC 3600 and IBM 7094 computers. Flexible input/output procedures provide control over the selection and arrangement of output parameters. Many tables, functions, and parameters, considered input quantities in most programs, have been incorporated into this program. These quantities may be treated as optional inputs where desired, however. Volume I of the report discusses the technical and programming approaches utilized and describes the program in general terms. Volume II contains detailed instructions for the use of the program as well as program listings. (Author)
