 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'After the 2011 disaster that occurred in Japan, improvement of nuclear safety appears more clearly as a paramount condition for further development of nuclear industry. The NURESAFE project addresses engineering aspects of nuclear safety, especially those relative to design basis accidents (DBA). Although the Japanese event was a severe accident, in a process of defense-in-depth, prevention and control of DBA is obviously one of the priorities in the process of safety improvement. In this respect, the best simulation software are needed to justify the design of reactor protection systems and measures taken to prevent and control accidents. The NURESAFE project addresses safety of light water reactors which will represent the major part of fleets in the world along the whole 21st century. The first objective of NURESAFE is to deliver to European stakeholders a reliable software capacity usable for safety analysis needs and to develop a high level of expertise in the proper use of the most recent simulation tools. Nuclear reactor simulation tools are of course already widely used for this purpose but more accurate and predictive software including uncertainty assessment must allow to quantify the margins toward feared phenomena occurring during an accident and they must be able to model innovative and more complex design features. This software capacity will be based on the NURESIM simulation platform created during FP6 NURESIM project and developed during FP7 NURISP project which achieved its goal by making available an integrated set of software at the state of the art. The objectives under the work-program are to develop practical applications usable for safety analysis or operation and design and to expand the use of the NURESIM platform. Therefore, the NURESAFE project concentrates its activities on some safety relevant “situation targets”. The main outcome of NURESAFE will be the delivery of multiphysics and fully integrated applications.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

EU-funded researchers are working on delivering to all European stakeholders a most advanced and reliable platform for numerical simulations to verify the safety of existing as well as future nuclear reactors.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Since 2005, the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) has supported a series of research projects with the aim of establishing an integrated simulation framework for modelling light water reactors. These reactors, cooled and moderated by water, currently constitute the majority of all nuclear power plants.

The NURESIM project created the first common European computing platform. The follow-up NURISP project demonstrated and improved the predictive capabilities of individual models, solvers and codes incorporated into the platform.

This project, http://www.nuresafe.eu (NURESAFE) (Nuclear reactor safety simulation platform), was launched in 2013 to take the simulation platform for reactor safety analysis a step further. More than 20 universities, research centres and industry partners are involved in this effort to increase accuracy when forecasting any extension to safe reactor lifetime.

Nuclear reactor simulation tools are already widely used for this purpose. However, they should also be able to model local conditions of core and in-vessel components, including new and more complex reactor designs. More accurate predictions of the fuel pin power and temperature field of reactors' internal structures are also needed to quantify the margins for feared phenomena during an accident.

By the end of 2015, the NURESAFE team will have delivered new functions to support the existing European simulation platform in multi-scale and multi-physics calculations. The platform will be able to couple neutronics, thermal-hydraulics and fuel performance codes at various physical and time scales.

The multi-physics simulations may be composed of individual physics-based numericalmodels, and a software tool will integrate the separate pieces. Time-dependent solutions of stochastic and deterministic 3D neutron transport will be provided to model heterogeneous core configurations.

After the Fukushima Daiichi accident in Japan, improving predictions of the reactor core behaviour has become of paramount importance in the nuclear industry. The ultimate outcome of the NURESAFE project will be a reliable software platform for modelling, recording and recovering data for nuclear reactor simulations.
