The primary activities of the Engineering Simulation section directly support ongoing nuclear science and engineering programs within the Nuclear Engineering Division of Argonne National Laboratory. Efforts focus on the optimization of heat and mass transport in nuclear energy systems using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations to predict velocity distributions and heat transfer characteristics. Applications range from optimization of flow distributions in next-generation nuclear reactor concepts to target development for accelerator driven systems for transmutation of nuclear waste.
