European Platform for Nuclear Reactor Simulations

Objective

The NURESIM IP is envisaged to provide the initial step towards a Common European Standard SoftwarePlatform for modeling, recording, and recovering computer data for nuclear reactors simulations. Such acommon platform would also facilitate the exchange of data across sites, application codes and computingplatforms. Key objectives of NURESIM include: (i) integration of advanced physical models in a shared and open software platform; (ii) promoting and incorporating the latest advances in reactor and core physics, thermal-hydraulics, and coupled (multi-) physics modeling; (iii) progress assessment by using deterministic and statisticalsensitivity and uncertainty analyses, verification and benchmarking; and (iv) training, dissemination, best practiceand quality assurance. The specific objectives of NURESIM are to initiate the development of the next-generation of experimentally validated, "best-estimate" tools for modeling (thermal-hydraulics, core physics, andmulti-physics) present and future reactors. The improved prediction capabilities, standardization and robustness of the envisaged NURESIM European Platform would address current and future needs of industry, reactorsafety organizations, academic, government, and private institutions.
