SHEDS-Dietary is the dietary exposure module of the SHEDS-Multimedia exposure model. It provides a flexible framework for stochastic simulation of population exposures to single or multiple chemicals in food. This Quick Start guide is intended for persons familiar with dietary exposure and risk assessment who would like to quickly learn how to use SHEDS-Dietary 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.
