Title: Initial Industry Collaborations of the Center of Excellence

Abstract

The NEAMS program aims to develop an integrated multi-physics simulation capability “pellet-to-plant” for the design and analysis of future generations of nuclear power plants. In particular, the Reactor Product Line code suite's multi-resolution hierarchy is being designed to ultimately span the full range of length and time scales present in relevant reactor design and safety analyses, as well as scale from desktop to petaflop computing platforms. In particular the NEAMS program is supporting the development of novel thermal-hydraulic codes. The Center of Excellence for Thermal Fluids Application in Nuclear Energy, launched in 2018, has as its key goals to serve as a front door to industry. The Center of Excellence for Thermal Fluids Applications in Nuclear Energy has recently launched a program to start collaborative efforts between the laboratories and industry with the objective of stimulating cooperation and increasing adoption of T/H tools developed under NEAMS by the industry-at-large. In particular, two industry partners agreed to participate in pilot short-term collaborations aimed at demonstrating the value of NEAMS tools to their designs. These are BWXT and Kairos who proposed projects related to HTGR and FHR designs respectively. In this report we present the results of these collaborations.
