Title: DoSSiER: Database of scientific simulation and experimental results

Abstract

The Geant4, GeantV and GENIE collaborations regularly perform validation and regression tests for simulation results. DoSSiER (Database of Scientific Simulation and Experimental Results) is being developed as a central repository to store the simulation results as well as the experimental data used for validation. DoSSiER can be easily accessed via a web application. In addition, a web service allows for programmatic access to the repository to extract records in json or xml exchange formats. In this paper, we describe the functionality and the current status of various components of DoSSiER as well as the technology choices we made.

  • This paper reports that the systems approach to geology is both a sophisticated ideology and a scientific method for investigation of very complicated geological systems. As applied to petroleum geology, it includes the methodological base and technology of mathematical simulation used for modeling geological systems: the systems that have been previously investigated and estimated by experimental data and/or field studies. Because geological systems develop in time, it is very important to simulate them as dynamic systems. The main tasks in the systems approach to petroleum geology are the numerical simulation of physical and reservoir properties of rocks, pore (geofluid) pressuremore » in reservoir beds, and hydrocarbon resources. The results of numerical simulation are used for prediction of geological system structure and behavior in both studies and noninvestigated areas.« less
  • Although the US offshore areas hold only 17.5% of the nation's proven hydrocarbon reserves (13.2% of total oil reserves and 20.7% of gas), the offshore share of potential reserves is larger, containing 30% of total potential reserves (34% of oil and 28% gas). Of the offshore proven reserves, gas dominates in the Gulf of Mexico and in Alaska while oil prevails along the West Coast. This mix could change, however, as offshore exploration accelerates to make up for continuing declines in proven reserves. The Gulf is the most active offshore area, followed by California and Alaska. Nevertheless, offshore activity stillmore » remains marginal relative to total US drilling; for every 100 wells drilled in 1983, less than 2 were offshore.« less
  • The Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and the Council of Ministers of the USSR noted (in a decision entitled ''Measures related to accelerating scientific-industrial progress in the national economy'') that, because the Party has paid steady, close attention to the development of science and technology, the Soviet Union has made progressive gains and has become a powerful industrial state which has a powerful scientific-industrial potential available. The scales on which the benefits of science and industry are used in the Soviet Union's economy have increased considerably consistent with the course of action worked out bymore » the 25th and 26th Congresses of the Communist Party, which course of action had to do with the comprehensive intensification of production by the society.« less
  • A loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA) is one of the most severe accidents for a nuclear power plant. To demonstrate inherent safety characteristics incorporated into small high-temperature gas-cooled reactor (HTGR) design, LOCA simulation tests have been conducted at the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Versuchsreaktor (AVR), the German pebble-bed-high-temperature reactor plant. The AVR is the only nuclear power plant ever to have been intentionally subjected to LOCA conditions without emergency cooling. This paper presents the planning and licensing activities including pretest predictions performed for the LOCA test are described, and the conduct of the test and experimental results. The LOCA test was planned to create conditionsmore » that would exist if a rapid LOCA occurred with the reactor operating at full power. The test demonstrated this reactor's safe response to an accident in which the coolant escapes from the reactor core and no emergency system is available to provide coolant flow to the core. The test is of special interest because it demonstrates the inherent safety features incorporated into optimized modular HTGR designs. The main LOCA test lasted for 5 days. After the test began, core temperatures increased for {approx}13 h and then gradually and continually decreased as the rate of heat dissipation from the core exceeded the simulated decay power. Throughout the test, temperatures remained below limiting values for the core and other reactor components.« less
