In the MRT (Multi-stage, Response-function Transport) methodology, the problem of interest is partitioned into stages based on its physics, and each stage is represented by a response function or set of coefficients. These stages are combined into a linear system of equations which are solved iteratively using the pre-calculated functions and/or coefficients.
RAPID (Real-time Analysis for Particle-transport In-situ Detection) is developed based on the MRT methodology that enables its real-time simulation capability. The current version of RAPID is capable of simulating nuclear systems such as spent fuel pools, spent fuel casks, and reactor cores. RAPID solves for pin-wise, axially-dependent fission density, critical/subcritical multiplication, and detector response.
Furthermore, recently a multi-user virtual reality system (VRS) has been developed that provides a web-based application for input preparation, real-time simulation, and output processing and visualization in a virtual environment. For an introduction, please view the following demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Q2ytjBrmXc
Topics to be covered
1. MRT methodology and example applications
2. RAPID code system
3. VRS-RAPID demonstration
4. Hands-on use by participants
Requirements: There will be access to wireless internet so that the participants can have remote access to VRS-RAPID. The current version of VRS-RAPID is optimized for a Personal Computer using the Google Chrome browser, but it can be accessed through iPad, Tablet, etc. using any other browser. To facilitate establishing individual accounts, participants are encouraged to contact Prof. Haghighat prior to the workshop.
Workshop participation fee is: 25 Euro/p
