Delivering CAE for the Nuclear Energy Industry

Delivering CAE for the Nuclear Energy Industry

Nuclear Energy is again back at the top of the agenda and the UK will benefit from a new generation of nuclear power stations. The design challenges for this next generation of plant require the use of tools which provide high fidelity and accurate design simulations across many engineering disciplines.  With recent landmark European Legislation there is now a new framework regulating the skills needed to work in this sector: “SQEP” (Suitably Qualified and Experienced Personnel). 

Are you ready for SQEP?

Seminar Objective

This seminar provided an opportunity to learn about Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) methods for the Nuclear Energy Industry, with presentations given by industry experts. The implications of “SQEP” were discussed along with the opportunities that growth in this sector may bring.  The aim was to highlight the challenges and opportunities of facing CAE for the Civil Nuclear Energy sector, over the coming years.
