Section 3 - Software Models
This section provides a list of some of the risk assessment software models available. The models are described and a source contact given. The models are divided into risk assessment / management models (Category 1), exposure assessment / transport / fate models (Category 2), and hazard identification / release assessment models (Category 3). It is recognised that the list cannot, in any way, be considered comprehensive. There are probably well over 500 such models in existence word-wide. The models presented here are examples. Category 4 provides information on a couple of directories of software products.
Sources of information include personal contact with vendors/developers, literature searches and work carried out by UK Environment Agency (HMIP), DNV Technica, and Imperial College London (Link Research Project - Pollution Risk Assessment Techniques for Non-Routine Releases from Industrial Processes, 1995).
