  • Tracking and Predicting the Atmospheric Dispersion of Hazardous Material Releases: Implications for Homeland Security

    For many years, communities have prepared themselves to deal with accidental atmospheric releases from industrial sites, energy facilities, and vehicles transporting hazardous materials. Today, these communities must also worry about the terrorist threat of the intentional use of chemical, biological, and nuclear (C/B/N) agents. Because of this ...

  • ASTM Computer Program for Chemical Thermodynamic and Energy Release Evaluation -- CHETAH Version 9.0

    The latest version of the CHETAH® program is a vital resource for predicting both thermochemical properties and certain reactive chemical hazards associated with a pure chemical, a mixture of chemicals, or a chemical reaction. CHETAH® is useful for classifying materials for their ability to decompose with violence, estimating heats of ...
