Modeling & Simulation for the Nuclear Industry

The seminar will focus on modelling and simulation in the nuclear industry.

Simulation plays a large role in the nuclear industry, as the safety requirements are so strict and require assessment of beyond design basis scenarios and extreme loading conditions, which cannot be easily tested so have to be simulated. 

Therefore the presentations will be a selection of technical papers sharing some of the latest case studies and new simulation techniques.

The seminar offers an ideal opportunity to meet some of the international experts from the nuclear industry and discuss the latest developments and challenges in modelling and simulation needed to build new reactors, maintain the existing reactors and decommission the old reactors.
