An Analytical Methodology for Evaluating Radiological Protection Alternatives Using Analytical Hierarchy Process
Sa, Sang-Duk ;
Journal of Radiation Protection and Research, volume 19, issue 2, 1994, Pages 99~107
This study aims to introduce a prescriptive methodology to comprehensively support the analysis of decision process by the use of Saaty's Analytical Hierarchy Process for the optimization of radiation protection. The analytical Hierarchy Process for the optimization of radiation protection. The analytical process for the problem of selecting options among given protection alternatives is illustrated with the data of the uranium mine example in ICRP Publ. 55. This technique, unlike other conventional selection method, is considered to provide a useful tool for the protection manager with respect to its ease of use and simplification in the choice of optimal alternative associated with radiological protection.
Application of the Fuzzy Set Theory to Uncertain Parameters in a Countermeasure Model

A method for estimating the effectiveness of each protective action against a nuclear accident has been proposed using the fuzzy set theory. In most of the existing countermeasure models in actions under radiological emergencies, the large variety of possible features is simplified by a number of rough assumptions. During this simplification procedure, a lot of information is lost which results in much uncertainty concerning the output of the countermeasure model. Furthermore, different assumptions should be used for different sites to consider the site specific conditions. Tn this study, the diversity of each variable related to protective action has been modelled by the linguistic variable. The effectiveness of sheltering and evacuation has been estimated using the proposed method. The potential advantage of the proposed method is in reducing the loss of information by incorporating the opinions of experts and by introducing the linguistic variables which represent the site specific conditions.

This study concerns about the measurement and the investigation of environmental radiation characteristics which the components and the distribution of exposure rates by terrestrial y-rays in Taegu area.
NaI(T1) scintillation detector with a multichannel analyzer was used in the measurement of y-rays as a part of in-situ spectrometry at twenty eight different locations in this area. The conversion into the exposure rate from the measured
spectrum has been carried out leading to a net exposure rate and component ones by
series products which are known by the major parts in the terrestrial
generally. As a result, the average exposure rate by the terrestrial
in Taegu area is
and the distribution of individual exposure rates shows more or less differences between these locations even after the consideration of diurnal and yearly variations which are always involved in these measurements. The component parts of exposure rates are distributed
over the measured locations.

Recently, the Ministry of Science and Technology issued a Ministerial Ordinance (No 1992-15) about the technical criteria on personnel radiation dosimetry. In today's climate, it is important to demonstrate and document that the processor's systems and services to others meet national standards of quality. The purpose of this study is to verify the performance of the Teledyne PB-3 personnel dosimetry system that is generally used in Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute(KAERI) by intercomparison with Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The KAERI has been participated in this personnel dosimetry intercomparison study(PDIS) program since 1991 and it could be possible to test and calibrate personnel monitoring system. This report presents a summary and analysis of by about 50 dose equivalent measurements reported for PDIS-16 through 18 (1991 -1993) with emphasis on neutron dose equivalent sensitivity, accuracy and precision. Relationships of the PDIS results to occupational neutron monitoring and methods to improve personnel dosimetry performance are also discussed.

On-line gamma monitoring system around KAERI-site was set up to monitor the radiation fluctuations in environment. Data on gamma exposure rates measured by the ionication chamber in the monitoring posts are transmitted to a computer of central control station with. radio telemetry transmission modem and monitored in real time. Radio telemetry transmission system is economical and reliable on handling and storing of data. This monitroing system can triger an early warning system in the event of abnormal radiation levels.
