Abstract: On the basis of establishing a risk assessment index system, a model for assessing the risk of radiation protective countermeasures is proposed by introducing a fuzzy mathematics method and entropy weight theory, and the risk order of the radiation protective countermeasures is ranked by their entropy weight coefficients, which solves the decision problem of uncertain and fuzzy indexes in the risk assessment index system and could provide the decision-making basis for commanders in the process of nuclear accident rescue. The illustrative case study shows that the model could use the inherent information of the indexes adequately, and makes risk assessment for radiation protective countermeasures more reasonable, practicable and scientific.

Keywords: radiation protection countermeasures; risk assessment; entropy weight; fuzzy mathematics; decision-making; nuclear accidents.
