This report provides a set of suggested methods and practices for determining the source term and analysing the radiological consequences of research reactor accidents. It provides safety analysts, regulators, and reactor facility management and operations staff, with the calculation methods and techniques necessary for deriving the source term. This includes all factors relevant to the formation of radioactive releases, and for estimating on- and off-site radiological consequences. The specific examples of methods and techniques provided are also intended to meet the requirements and recommendations for performing safety analyses for research reactor facilities, particularly for preparing safety analysis reports.
