Fuel and core analyses, calculations, codes
Nuclear fuel providers are facing great challenges to the codes and methods development due to heterogeneity, higher enrichments and burnup, low leakage, and power uprates. Anticipating customer’s needs for the future, Framatome took up the challenge to significantly advance the state-of-the-art in nuclear methods. Framatome prepares the next generation of codes and methods (ARCADIA, GALILEO, ARGOS, AREA, ARITA) capable to handle the challenges in fuel assembly design, core design, safety analysis and core monitoring.
