Title: dfnWorks, Version 2.0

Abstract

DFNWorks is a suite of software for generating and solving flow and transport physics on a Discrete Fracture Network (DFN). The suite is composed of three components: DFNGen: Stochastic fracture generation, mesh generation, model setup; DFNFlow: Flow solution using PFLOTRAN or FEHM control volume formulation solver; DFNTrans: Particle tracking transport; DFNGen Algorithm Description: This is a workflow that uses C++ software version for fracture generation, Python scripts written by the authors and the LaGriT software to generate computational mesh. DFNFlow The solution of flow in porous media is accomplished by coupling DFNGen output with the existing software packages FEHM and PFLOTRAN. The DFNWorks workflow involves modules and scripts that translate DFNGen output to formats compatible with FEHM and PFLOTRAN input. FEHM LA-CC-2012-083 PFLOTRAN LA-CC-09-047 LaGriT LA-CC-07-38 DFNTrans Stand-alone particle tracking algorithm that takes FEHM/PFLOTRAN flow solution as output and computes velocity field and advects particles.

  • The purpose of the Sandia National Laboratories Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) Software Quality Plan is to clearly identify the practices that are the basis for continually improving the quality of ASC software products. The plan defines the ASC program software quality practices and provides mappings of these practices to Sandia Corporate Requirements CPR 1.3.2 and 1.3.6 and to a Department of Energy document, ASCI Software Quality Engineering: Goals, Principles, and Guidelines. This document also identifies ASC management and software project teams responsibilities in implementing the software quality practices and in assessing progress towards achieving their software quality goals.

  • HAP-PRO model is designed to assist permit engineers in reviewing applications for control of air toxics. HAP-PRO calculates the capital and annual costs for up to six different VOCs and three particulate matter control devices. Calculations mirror those presented in the EPA handbook, `Control Technologies for Hazardous Air Toxics` (June 1991, EPA-625/6-91-014) and the EPA `Control Cost Manual` (March 1990)(EPA-45-/3-90/006).
  • The Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) of 1990 called for Reasonable Further Progress (RFP) inventories to be submitted to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the purpose of demonstrating strategies by which a 15% reduction in volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions will be achieved over the years 1990 to 1996. This requirement applies to moderate, serious, severe, and extreme ozone nonattainment areas. In addition, serious, severe, and extreme areas must demonstrate at least a 3% annual average reduction beginning in 1996 and continuing thereafter until attainment is reached. In order to meet section 182(b)(1) and 182(c)(2) requiremnts, state/local airmore » agencies require a computer system capable of performing `what if scenario analysis` and reporting the final results (i.e., their Rate of Progress (ROP) inventory) to the EPA (i.e., Aerometric Information Retrieval System (AIRS)). This system will be based upon the 3% RFP Tracking System that was developed in FY92/FY93. The 3% RFP Tracking System to a Multiple Projections System (MPS) will continue to be within the framework of a Windows application. The system will support ROP inventories for ozone and carbon monoxide (CO) and thus will contain VOC, oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and CO data. The most significant change from the original 3% RFP Tracking System to the MPS is the ability to submit a `final` projection emissions inventory in the format required by the AIRS Facility Subsystem (AFS) and the AIRS Area and Mobile Subsystem (AMS). The MPS is by outward appearance a collection of screens with buttons the user can click. These buttons simplify the task of setting user-defined parameters which the program will use in projecting future emissions and generating screen or hard copy output.« less
  • Several previous studies performed for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have focused on characteristics of software development processes that are important for the development of high-integrity software. These include software reliability (NUREG/CR-6101, Lawrence) and software design factors (NUREG/CR-6294, Lawrence and Preckshot and Ploof and Preckshot). Ploof and Preckshot has been included as Appendix B of this report. In addition, recent analyses of standards important to the development of software for the safety systems of nuclear power plants have indicated the importance of the understanding and use of a complete framework of standards in the development ofmore » such software (Scott et. al.). Finally, Preckshot (Appendix A) addressed the assessment of software development processes used by software vendors. The latter work defined a set of steps to be followed in conducting vendor assessments. This report relates, in detail, the vendor assessment steps to the planning audits proposed in NUREG/CR-6101. The correspondence of the vendor assessment steps to the design factor categories of NUREG/CR-6294 is also discussed.« less
