Title: Turbulent Flow of Coolant in an Advanced Nuclear Reactor

Abstract

Award-winning visualization from Argonne National Laboratory! The video represents the turbulent flow of coolant into a mock-up of the upper plenum of an advanced recycling nuclear reactor. The colors indicate the speed of the fluid, with red representing regions of high velocity and blue representing regions of low velocity. Performed at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility at Argonne National Laboratory. The computations were carried out on one of the world's fastest and most energy-efficient supercomputers: Intrepid, Argonne's IBM Blue Gene/P. The visualizations were performed on Eureka with software developed at Argonne. Eureka is also located at the ALCF and is one of the world's largest graphics processing units, providing more than 111 teraflops and over 3.2 terabytes of RAM.
