GENII-LIN: a Multipurpose Health Physics Code Built on GENII-1.485
Marco Sumini, Francesco Teodori
The aim of the GENII-LIN project was to develop an open source multipurpose health physics code running on Linux platform, for calculating radiation dose and risk from radionuclides released to the environment. The general features of the GENII-LIN system include
 capabilities for calculating radiation dose both for acute and chronic releases, with options for annual dose, committed dose and accumulated dose
 capabilities for evaluating exposure pathways including direct exposure via water (swimming, boating, fishing), soil (buried and surface sources) and air (semi-infinite cloud and finite cloud model), inhalation pathways and ingestion pathways.
The release scenarios considered are:
- acute release to air, from ground level or elevated sources, or to water;
- chronic release to air, from ground level or elevated sources, or to water;
- initial contamination of soil or surfaces.
