Waste Management

The long term storage, transportation, and final storage of spent fuel continue to be an economically expensive and politically sensitive topic for the nuclear industry. To convince regulators and the public of the safety of atomic power, owners and operators need to demonstrate the long term viability of storage, retrieval, and transportation scenarios, both at the reactor site and in final disposal locations.

With timescales of many thousands of years, only comprehensive thermo-mechanical simulation of the structural, heat transfer, and radiation behavior of storage can provide public confidence and financial security into proposed solutions.

Our advanced simulation tools provide the insight and understanding required to design and operate long term storage, transportation, disposal, and retrieval systems for high-level nuclear waste. These solutions offer the ability to simulate system-wide behavior as well as capture the highest level of detail through its 3D computer-aided engineering (CAE) approaches such as finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Together they allow owners and operators to perform detailed simulations of the thermo-mechanical history of the fuel, both under intended storage scenarios and during accidental damage to a cask.
