Coffee & Viz – High Fidelity Simulations of Nuclear Reactor Flows

Hunt Library Teaching & Visualization Lab
Friday, August 25
9:15 AM
Nuclear reactors present a challenge for researchers interested in exploring turbulent conditions in liquids using direct, experimental approaches. As a result, researchers are increasingly using high-performance computing (HPC) to develop simulations of complex turbulent flows in real-world environments. This talk will explain how HPC can enable researchers to run high fidelity “virtual experiments” of fully resolved turbulent flows within a nuclear reactor. It will also provide an overview of some data analysis techniques researchers can apply to these simulations to develop understandings of the bubble-turbulence interactions that occur within reactors. This event does not require advance registration. Seating may be limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis.  Attendance will be taken by Graham Whitehouse.
