MC2-3: Multigroup Cross-Sections for Fast Reactors

MC2-3 generates broad-group, cell-average microscopic cross sections from ENDF/B basic nuclear data.

PARMFLO: Parallel Reacting Multiphase Flow Analysis

Argonne’s PARMFLO software is used to solve multiphase reacting flow computational fluid dynamic problems using parallel computing techniques.

BatPRO Software License Agreement

BatPRO enables the design of a battery manufacturing facility.

SAS4A/SASSYS-1: Fast Reactor Safety Analysis Code

Argonne’s SAS4A/SASSYS-1 safety analysis code system is a simulation tool that can perform deterministic transient safety analysis of anticipated operational events, as well as design-basis and beyond-design-basis accidents for advanced nuclear reactors. The original code development was for sodium-cooled fast reactors, and sodium boiling can be modeled. However, basic core thermal-hydraulics and systems analysis features are applicable to other liquid-metal cooled reactor concepts.

Restore: Modeling Repair and Restoration Processes

Argonne’s Restore software models complex sets of steps required to accomplish a goal, such as repairing a ruptured natural gas pipeline, when the time required to complete a step may be uncertain. For example, external conditions (i.e., the time of day, weather, and availability of crew) may affect one or more of the steps required to accomplish a goal. Therefore, “nature” can influence which steps are taken and the time needed to complete each step.

GFM: Glass Furnace Modeling

When making glass, exact control of energy, mass and momentum is critical. If the glass has measurable defects or non-uniformities, it cannot be used, wasting large amounts of energy and productivity. These problems exist for any company producing glass products. However, Argonne’s Glass Furnace Model (GFM) simulation code can help ensure that furnaces produce the highest quality glass possible.

Autonomie: Automotive System Design

Argonne’s Autonomie is a MATLAB©-based software environment and framework for automotive control system design, simulation and analysis.

Autonomie is capable of

Ombudsman

The ombudsman assigned to Argonne National Laboratory will:

  • Serve as a point of contact for the public as an independent and impartial person that can address inquiries and help resolve stakeholder concerns.
  • Act as mediator to facilitate the independent resolution of issues and questions, when appropriate.
