This workshop aims to provide participants with a comprehensive guide to measurement uncertainty that is practical and useful while demystifying some traditionally confusing concepts through examples.
4. CFD Modeling of Contemporary Nuclear Reactor Fuel Bundles with STAR-CCM+

E. Volpenhein (CD-Adapco)
J. Ryan (CD-Adapco)
E. Baglietto (MIT)
T. Fedozzi (CD-Adapco)

Half day:

9:00 - 12:00

STAR-CCM+ offers a distinctly integrated and complete simulation environment that is exceptionally well suited to the intricate designs of contemporary fuel bundles and advanced fuel concepts. This workshop will familiarize participants with the preparation and analysis of contemporary reactor fuel bundle simulations using STAR-CCM+.
5. GOTHICTM – Overview, Status, and Applications

Jeffrey Lane (Zachry/NAI)
Davide Papini  (PSI)
Gonzalo Jiménez (UPM)
Tobias Strömgren (Westinghouse Electric Sweden AB)
Mark Lanza (Zachry/NAI)

Half day:

13:00 - 17:00

This workshop will provide a general overview of the software and capabilities as well as highlight several special features (e.g., multiple droplet fields, radioactive isotopes, liquid components, etc.). Insight on current development efforts and future plans will also be provided.
