The Quantitative Risk Analysis group utilizes computational methods to analyze a variety of risks associated with the design and operation of radiological, nuclear, and chemical facilities. Our expertise includes Monte Carlo simulations of radiation transport, safety compliance for packaging and transportation of radioactive materials, nuclear safeguards technology development, system engineering and statistical analysis for nuclear material management, gamma spectroscopic analysis, hazard and accident analyses, safety basis documentation, quantification of margin and uncertainty, and sensitivity analysis.
