SHEDS-Residential is the residential exposure module of the SHEDS-Multimedia exposure model. It provides a flexible framework for stochastic simulation of population exposures to single or multiple chemicals applied in residential homes, yards, and gardens. This Quick Start guide is intended for persons familiar with chemical exposure and risk assessment who would like to quickly learn how to use SHEDS-Residential via a hands-on approach. This guide presents a quick introduction to the SHEDS model's capabilities and the basic steps required to initialize and run a SHEDS exposure simulation, as demonstrated through an example tutorial case study.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
