Airborne Release Fractions/Rates and Respirable Fractions for Nonreactor Nuclear Facilities

Reaffirmed 2013

The purpose of this document is to provide a compendium and analysis of experimental data from which airborne release fractions (ARFs) and respirable fractions (RFs) may be derived. Such values are needed to determine quantities of radioactive material driven airborne for the purpose of estimating the scope of the potential release spectrum and potential downwind consequences from a given facility or activity.
