MMSNF 2013 Workshop
The Materials Modeling and Simulation of Nuclear Fuels (MMSNF) workshop series aims at stimulating research and discussions on models and simulations of nuclear fuels and coupling the results into fuel performance codes, with the hope that this leads to improved fuel designs. Although centered on multi-scale model development and computer simulations, close connections to theory, experiment and technology are encouraged.
In addition to research focused on existing or improved types of LWR reactors, efforts also exist internationally to develop innovative nuclear fuels and materials for future generations of nuclear reactors. A key rationale behind this workshop is to contribute toward improving the communication and to stimulate synergies among these different efforts.
