Multiscale NTP Fuel Element Materials Simulation

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Multiscale NTP Fuel Element Materials Simulation
Project will leverage a multiscale modeling approach pioneered for light water reactor (LWR) fuels to simulate performance in a prototypical environment. The objective is to conduct proof-of-concept simulations and illustrate the applicability of existing MARMOT (mesoscale) and BISON (macroscale) codes to CERMET Fuels in NTP conditions. Simulating the degradation of properties in CERMET fuels under the harsh conditions will require innovative computational analysis not currently available. The illustrations will be accomplished by determining the effective thermal conductivity in MARMOT and simulating heat conduction. More »
