Abstract

The paper proposes a model (based on the Gauss distribution) for the chemical toxicity dispersion in air. A computer software (named as ChemCode) has been also developed using language C/C++ (together with software tools as Visual Studio 2013/2017, Spyder, Python and other libraries NumPy, Matplotlib,...) for fast calcuations of chemical toxicity concentration in chemical accidents as a function of latitudes and time. The ChemCode is validated through a comparison of calulation time and calculated results of chemical toxicity concentration with those obtained from an international commercial software, ALOHA (USA). The ChemCode has been developed for supporting the planning of command decision and response of the military force to a chemical accident.
