Title: Warthog Framework Update: Depletion Capabilities

Abstract

The Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation (NEAMS) program the US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Nuclear Energy supports two simulation frameworks to provide advanced simulation techniques for analyzing nuclear reactors. Primarily at Idaho National Laboratory (INL), the fuels product line (FPL) is developing the fuel performance code BISON from Hales et al. [2016], which depends on the Multiphysics Object-Oriented Simulation Environment (MOOSE) framework developed by Gaston et al. [2009]. Likewise, at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), in the reactor product line (RPL), PROTEUS is being developed by Lee et al. [2013] and Nek5000 by Fischer et al. [2015] based on the Simulation-based High-efficiency Advanced Reactor Prototyping (SHARP) framework from Tautges et al. [2013]. MOOSE employs a bottom-up approach to multiphysics coupling, where component codes are built upon a common framework. SHARP employs a top-down approach in which legacy component codes are connected after being separately developed. Each approach has benefits and disadvantages, but this work focuses on having the two approaches work in harmony.
