Modeling & Simulation for the Nuclear Industry

In 2010 NAFEMS hosted the seminar ‘Delivering CAE for the nuclear Energy Industry”. In the following four years Nuclear Energy has rarely been out of the news.

The Fukushima disaster in 2011 which resulted in the meltdown of three of the plant’s six nuclear reactors brought the potential dangers of nuclear power generation to the public’s attention. Recently attention has focused on the UK’s ability to cope with power demands, this winter, with four nuclear reactors at two large power plants in the north of England being temporary shutdown for safety reasons. 

On a more positive note planning permission and a site license have been granted at Hinkley Point C. This is the first new site license for a UK nuclear powerstation in 25 years. This coupled with the announcement in 2012, of seven year plant life extensions for two of the UK’s fleet of nuclear reactors, ensure that nuclear power will play a very significant role in Britain’s energy future.

Seminar Objective

The seminar will provide an opportunity to learn about the current Modelling and Simulation methods that are used in the Nuclear Energy Industry.Attendees will receive presentations from industry experts.

Themes Include:

  • Multiphysics modelling
  • Building Information Modelling
  • Advanced Simulation Techniques for the Nuclear Industry
  • Fracture
  • Fatigue of Dissimilar Metal Welds     

Who Should Attend

The seminar is aimed at engineers and managers inthe nuclear industry who want to gain an appreciation of the "bestpractice" application of CAE tools within the nuclear community.
