June 14 - June 15

Event Navigation

North Carolina State University, Nuclear Engineering Department, 1121 Burlington Laboratories (Duke Energy Conference Room), 2500 Stinson Drive, Raleigh, NC 27695-7909

The Workshop is under the auspices of the Expert Group on Multi-Physics Experimental data, Benchmarks, and Validation (EGMPEBV) at NEA/OECD. The focus of the workshop is the validation of novel high-fidelity multi-physics modeling and simulation tools within the work scope of Task Force 2 (TF2) of EGMPEBV.

Maria Avarmova (mnavramo@ncsu.edu) – Local Organizer and Co-Chair of the Workshop

Kumar Rohatgi (rohatgi@bnl.gov) – Leader of TF2 of EGMPEBV and Co-Chair of the Workshop
