    1. Number of employees

      Researcher a few persons

    2. Recruitment field

      Research Theme:
      Development of computing technologies for advanced computational science in nuclear engineering

      Promotion of advanced computational science and development of novel computing technologies are required for solving important issues in nuclear engineering such as analysis of environmental dynamics of radioactive substances, thermal-hydraulic analysis of the reactor core at severe accidents, and accurate reconstruction technologies for radiation measurement data. In this research theme, one of the following research topics will be addressed by using state of the art supercomputers.

      • 1) Multi-scale and multi-physics CFD simulations of complex fluids, which take account of phase change, physical property change, and chemical reactions, are needed for thermal-hydraulic analysis of the reactor core at severe accidents and analysis of environmental dynamics of radioactive substances. In this topic, advanced CFD schemes and calculation models will be developed for such complex CFD simulations.
      • 2) Accurate reconstruction technologies of the distribution of radioactive substances from radiation measurement data are needed for the recovery of Fukushima and decommissioning processes. In this topic, accurate reconstruction technologies will be developed to determine three dimensional distributions of radioactive substances in environments involving complex shields such as natural and artificial structures from gamma ray measurements via Compton cameras.
      • 3) To promote computational science research driven by state of the art supercomputers, we will develop related computing technologies such as optimization techniques for accelerators, extreme scale matrix solvers based on advanced algorithms, and visualization and analysis techniques for extreme scale measurement and simulation data.
