EMPLOYING SOFTWARE MULTI-AGENTS FOR SIMULATING RADIOLOGICAL ACCIDENTS

Tadeu Augusto de Almeida Silva, Oscar Luiz Monteiro de Farias

Abstract

Through agent based systems we can build scenarios of radiological accidents that enable us to evaluate the consequences of accidental contaminations. The incidental release of radionuclides in an environment might cause the contamination of areas and people. So, it is necessary to make use of tools that allow us to foretell the effects of the exposition of the population and to evaluate the consequences and to suggest measures of protection. In this paper we introduce the use of software multi-agents systems immersed in a geographical representation of the world, as a viable option to simulate radiological accidents and assess doses.
