The STATFLUX code: a statistical method for calculation of flow and set of parameters, based on the Multiple-Compartment Biokinetical Model

Abstract The code STATFLUX, implementing a new and simple statistical procedure for the calculation of transfer coefficients in radionuclide transport to animals and plants, is proposed. The method is based on the general multiple-compartment model, which uses a system of linear equations involving geometrical volume considerations. Flow parameters were estimated by employing two different least-squares procedures: Derivative and Gauss–Marquardt methods, with the available experimental data of radionu... Title of program: STATFLUX Catalogue Id: ADYS_v1_0 Nature of problem The investigation of transport mechanisms for radioactive substances, through environmental pathways, is very important for radiological protection of populations. One such pathway, associated with the food chain, is the grass animal man sequence. The distribution of trace elements in humans and laboratory animals has been intensively studied over the past 60 years [1]. In addition, investigations on the incidence of cancer in humans, and a possible causal relationship to radioactive fallout, ha ...
