Simulations help to design a new low-enriched nuclear fuel for materials testing, isotope production and neutron radiography for research that reduces proliferation threat.
Fluid simulation solidifies its role in the radioactive waste treatment process. Radioactive waste treatment facility is being constructed to convert this waste into a stable glass-like material using a technology known as virification. A major challenge in this process is keeping the solids in the waste in suspension during its time in the holding vessels before the separation and processing stages.
The environmental impact of burning fossil fuels and their inevitable depletion have led to a growing interest in renewable energy sources. These sources of energy can no longer be overlooked, because of the need to achieve sustainable development and compliance with the provisions of the recently enforced Kyoto protocol. Wind energy, for example, is a low density source of power, available almost everywhere but not necessarily all the time, and its efficient exploitation requires continued in-depth studies.
A two-fluid multiphase model allows for more accurate simulation of coal gasification.
Around the world, oil and gas companies require best-in-class technology to maintain profitabiliy, reliability and safety.
Structural and fluids simulation help to optimize a subsea trenching vehicle to improve fluid performance efficiency by 26 percent and maintain robustness.
