Applied health physics evaluations and projects

ORAU offers consultation and expertise in support of applied health physics projects across the country

Applied health physics evaluation

Having performed site surveys of decommissioned nuclear sites for more than 25 years, ORAU has the expertise to conduct applied health physics evaluations to projects of all sizes.

ORAU performs applied health physics evaluations for government agencies, such as the development of technical evaluation reports for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation in support of the decommissioning of nuclear reactors and the preparation of final status survey plans.

Our independence has enabled us to attain a broad spectrum of experience, including the areas of fuel cycle, environmental health physics, and uranium health physics. We’ve conducted instrument studies, developed radiological software, and performed technical evaluations of decontamination and decommissioning plans and results.

Our experienced staff of health physicists, certified health physicists, and nuclear engineers have participated in applied health physics evaluations including:

  • Homeland Defense Equipment Reuse Program
  • NRC technical evaluation reports
  • In-situ gamma spectroscopy

From assisting with the development of technical basis documents to advice on how to set up an environmental monitoring program, we can help you determine the best course for your health physics project.
