This report is a statistical analysis of the additivity of doses from multiple-reactor sites. The problem is hypothetical but bears directly on the question of how many reactors can be located at a single site. The specific problem is to estimate the potential dose that would result from a multi-reactor site. The assumption is made that when two or more reactors occupy a site, each reactor operates independently. The data used is taken from operating reports of single unit reactors. Separate analyses were done for pressurized and boiling water reactors. Data for the pressurized water reactors shows concentrations of iodine-131 while the data for the boiling water reactors shows readings of noble gas releases. The main sections of the report deal with Evaluation of Data; Method of Analysis; and Example of Solution and Results.
