Institute for Defense Analyses, 4850 Mark Center Drive, Alexandria, VA 22311-1882, USA.Health physics (Impact Factor: 1.27). 09/2011; 101(3):286-98. DOI: 10.1097/HP.0b013e318210325b
The Human Response Injury Profile (HRIP) nuclear methodology provides an estimate of casualties occurring as a consequence of nuclear attacks against military targets for planning purposes. The approach develops user-defined, time-based casualty and fatality estimates based on progressions of underlying symptoms and their severity changes over time. This paper provides a description of the HRIP nuclear methodology and its development, including inputs, human response and the casualty estimation process.
