Current Research Status and Progress of Nuclear Energy Virtual Reactor in China and Abroad
Abstract: The latest progress in the field of nuclear energy advanced modeling & simulation is introduced in this paper, in which the meaning of the nuclear virtual reactor or numerical nuclear reactor is re-viewed. A detailed research and introduction about nuclear virtual reactor programs in the United State and Europe, such as CASL, NEAMS and NURESIM are addressed. Based on the research, the key technology and challenge of developing a nuclear virtual reactor are summarized, which can give the support to the further study of the nuclear virtual reactor.
