"High-fidelity nuclear reactor simulations and the need for Exascale computing"
Apr 26, 2023, Schedule:
- Nespresso & Teatime 417 DSL - Commons
- 03:00 to 03:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
- Colloquium - F2F 499 DSL / Virtual Zoom
- 03:30 to 04:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
In this talk, I will discuss the need for high-fidelity nuclear reactor simulations and their scale with a particular focus on neutron transport. This work is part of an Exascale Computing Project grant, named ExaSMR, on the development of stochastic transport method for the detailed simulation of small modular reactors (SMR). The talk will present strategies that were employed to improve the performance of simulation tools on the modern architectures that are the basis of the Frontier and Aurora computing platforms.
