We are excited to work with the broader open-source software community for the advancement of crucial technology.
Advanced Reactor Modeling Interface
An Advanced Reactor Modeling Interface to Speed Innovation
Open-source software can help improve options for advanced reactor designs and lay the foundation for a strong regulatory basis for new reactors.
TerraPower’s team joins developers of similar open-source software—such as Idaho National Laboratory’s Multiphysics Object-Oriented Simulation Environment (MOOSE), the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s OpenMOC, OpenMC and others—to work collaboratively with the U.S. Department of Energy and the nuclear industry in their efforts to develop and demonstrate advanced reactor technologies.
The open-source portion of TerraPower’s software offers a framework and ecosystem that will benefit from external contributors who are also in need of better automation tools and expressive reactor frameworks.
TerraPower’s advanced reactor modeling interface provides an integration platform that can improve the usability and coupling of physics kernels and reactor analysis methodologies, whether they be proprietary or publicly available.
