Improvement of techniques for multiscale modelling of irradiated materials

Improvement of techniques for multiscale modelling of irradiated materials

Objective

The objective of the proposed Thematic Network is to ensure that the developments required to simulate quantitatively irradiation effects in materials are performed rapidly and in a co-ordinated way in Europe. For the European nuclear industry this is a great opportunity to lead such an international effort in the direction of its interest. The Participants in the Network will be EU Organisations involved in the development of codes and models for computational multiscale modelling and/or in experimental studies concerning radiation effects in materials. Institutes from Eastern countries are also invited and the Network will have close relations with equivalent structures in the United States and Japan. Each Participant will keep financing its own scientific activities, but these will be co-ordinated within the structure of the Network by the leading Network organisation.

The use of test reactors and hot cell facilities becomes more and more problematic. One way of partially solving this problem is to develop tools for computer simulation of the effects of irradiation in materials.

The development of such tools (called Virtual Test Reactors: VTRs) began recently (1998) on specific issues with current simulation techniques. However, it is paramount to prepare anew generation of techniques, which will allow to enlarge the application field of VTRs within a few years. The objective of the proposed Thematic Network is to ensure that these developments are performed rapidly and in a co-ordinated way in Europe. For the European nuclear industry, this is a great opportunity to lead such an international effort in the direction of its interest. Multi-scale modelling approach is also being aggressively pursued in the US and in Japan. The Network will allow Europe to exchange information at an equal level with these countries.
