Final Activity Report - NURESIM (European Platform for Nuclear Reactor Simulations)

Project ID: 516560
Funded under: FP6-EURATOM-NUCTECH

Abstract

This is the final report of the NURESIM project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The aim of the project was to initiate the development of the next-generation of experimentally validated, 'best-estimate' tools for modeling (thermal-hydraulics, core physics, and multi-physics) present and future reactors. The improved prediction capabilities, standardisation and robustness of the envisaged NURESIM European Platform would address current and future needs of industry, reactor safety organizations, academic, government, and private institutions. This report is the final activity report of the NURESIM Integrated Project (2005 - 2008) in charge of the development of a common European standard software platform for nuclear reactor simulations. It presents a summary of the salient results obtained by the 18 partners during the project. It also summarises achievements of the platform in core physics, thermalhydraulics, multi-physics, uncertainties and code integration at the end of the NURESIM project.
