Nuclear & SMR
Gain a better understanding into the dynamic behaviour of nuclear cycles through Flownex® Simulation Environment. Flownex® has proved itself to save time and money in the design and commissioning of Nuclear systems with integrated Heat & Flow simulation together with control simulation.
Flownex SE enables system level modelling of nuclear plant fluid mechanics, heat transfer and neutronic response in both transient and steady state.
INTEGRATED PLANT SIMULATION
Flownex® Simulation Environment is used by many of the leading SMR companies working on the next generation of compact and safe power reactors. Our software is ASME NQA-1 compliant and seen as Gold Standard for systems CFD simulation.
- Equip engineers to do integrated plant calculations
- Evaluate different cycles
- Do component sizing
- Maximise design team productivity
Flownex® contains a full library of thermal hydraulic components, a 2D reactor model and analog and digital control components.
- Simulate complete integrated systems with control response in one software package
- Perform full transient simulation for dynamic behaviour and system feedback
- Save time and effort with virtual plant simulation and soft control commissioning
CONTROL SYSTEM TESTING
A complete Verification & Validation suite is available, developed under NQA-1 and the latest ISO 9001:2015 standard to ensure quality. This means Flownex® simulations can be put forth as safety test cases and submitted as such to regulators – as was done during the development of the PBMR.
Flownex® is the premier software for HTGR plant simulation due to its functionality and ease of use. If a team of engineers has to pick one single software tool to do a design, Flownex® would be it.
We have used Flownex® to develop the Thermal-Hydraulic model of our Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR) by using the components of Flownex® library. The user interface for transient simulations has multiple options to record and present the results. Flownex® provides excellent customer support every time we need their assistance.
