LANL HPC/Nuclear Engineering Seminar

Micro reactors are a new category of small reactors (1KW to 10MW electric) that are transportable and are of significant interest for a variety of applications.  Over the past 3 years, a scalable micro reactor prototype for NASA was developed, built, and tested by Los Alamos and NASA Glenn Research center. The ability to accurately model and simulate small nuclear reactors was critical in our ability to successfully license and carry out this experiment, and is critical for further development of this class of reactors.  Many challenges arise in the adequate simulation of these reactors including algorithm development, memory and CPU usage, and usage on High Performance Computing machinery.  This talk will cover how the engineering and computer science aspects interact to provide unique challenges in this
