This paper reveals a paradigm of analyzing the consequential effects of severe nuclear reactor accident, radionuclides fraction and source terms release, that will influence the MACCS2 codification [1], by coupling with the results of SAPHIA-PSA Levels l & 2 quantification process [2], MELCORE [3], STCP [4], PST [5], and XSOR [6]. Those codes are mutually exclusive and useful. However, it lacks of the closed interface and linkage for addressing Plant Damage States (PDS), Severe Accident Sequences, and Risk Consequence. Thus, it is imperative to formulate the consistent baseline information for MACCS2, PSA Levels 1, 2 and 3, and then linking to a new algorithm of NCM.
