Human Health Inhalation Risk with TRIM.Expo – Two example scenarios are provided below. NOTE: These applications are for training purposes only and are not intended to apply to any real world situation.

  • TRIM.Expo w. TRIM.Risk (1 run) - The first zip file package provided in step 2 below provides instructions for setting up and running an example application where TRIM.Risk calculates inhalation risks using exposure estimates generated by TRIM.ExpoInhalation (i.e., APEX) for a single chemical, study area, facility, and source.
     
  • TRIM.Expo w. TRIM.Risk (>1 run) example application – The second zip file package in step 2 below provides step-by-step instructions for setting up and running an example application where TRIM.Risk calculates inhalation risk estimates using inhalation exposure estimates generated by TRIM.ExpoInhalation (i.e., APEX) for multiple combinations of study areas, facilities, sources, and chemicals.

Step 1. - If TRIM has not been previously installed, install it using the TRIM Installer. Be sure to select "Inhalation Risk Assessment with TRIM.Expo" when prompted to "Please select the activities you expect to perform with TRIM."

Step 2. - Download the desired zip file (of the two below) and unzip it into the "input" subdirectory of your APEX directory (e.g., C:\Models\APEX\input). Be sure to maintain the directory structure of the files being unzipped. This is done by default with WinZip's Wizard interface, and is done by checking the "Use folder names" box in the Extract screen of WinZip's Classic interface.

TRIM.Expo w. TRIM.Risk (1 run) Example Application (zip)(53 MB)  (12/13/2005) - This ZIP file contains 27 files 

TRIM.Expo w. TRIM.Risk (>1 run) Example Application (99 MB) (12/28/2005) - This ZIP file contains 29 files.

Step 3. - Confirm that the Human Toxicity Value Database is currently installed on your computer. To do this, go to the "MySQL Server 4.x\data" subdirectory of the MySQL directory on your computer (e.g., C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 4.1\data) and check to see if the "HHToxDB" directory exists. If so, the Human Toxicity Value Database is installed. If you have not previously installed this database, download it from Section #4 above and follow the instructions for installing it.

Step 4. - Confirm that the Residency Period Database is currently installed on your computer. To do this, go to the "MySQL Server 4.x\data" subdirectory of the MySQL directory on your computer (e.g., C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 4.1\data) and check to see if the "resperdb" directory exists. If so, the Residency Period Database is installed. If you have not previously installed this database, download it from Section #4 above and follow the instructions for installing it.

Step 5. - Print the “StepsForTRIM…” pdf file (unzipped in Step 2) and follow its steps.
