CASL Summer Institute 2018
CASL: The Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors Education Program is excited to announce the registration for third annual CASL Summer Institute. Please plan to join us at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC on August 6-17, 2018.
The Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL) Institute will introduce participants to CASL and the Virtual Environment for Reactor Applications (VERA) framework and component codes. Through the CASL Institute, participants will receive instruction on radiation transport, thermal hydraulics, fuel performance, multi-physics coupling and sensitivity and uncertainty analysis. Over the course of the Institute, through both lecture and practical work sessions, participants will learn how to use individual component codes through the VERA framework, MPACT, COBRA-TF, and BISON, will be able to run a variety of test problems. In addition, the Institute will include instruction on and practice in utilizing high performance computing resources. After successful completion of the Institute and meeting certification requirements by completing a team project, participants will earn the CASL-VERA Certificate.
