Advancing Understanding of Fission Gas Behavior in Nuclear Fuel through Leadership Class Computing
The objective of this project is to develop high-performance simulation tools capable of predicting fission gas bubble evolution in nuclear fuel, and to demonstrate a Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) partnership project between the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) and the Office of Nuclear Energy (NE). Deployment of such tools will require the utilization of high performance computing resources and the development of a leadership-class computational code capable of spanning the multiple length and time scales needed to address the complex physical and computational challenges associated with accurately modeling nuclear fuel.
This pilot project has a duration of 18 months (2016-08-15/2018-02-14).
