AbstractPreprint ANL/MCS-P4010-0113This paper provides an introduction to the reactor analysis capabilities of the nuclear power reactor simulation tools that are being developed as part of the U.S. Department of Energy's Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation (NEAMS) Toolkit. The NEAMS Toolkit is an integrated suite of multi-physics simulation tools which leverage high-performance computing to reduce uncertainty in the prediction of performance and safety of advanced reactor and fuel designs. The Toolkit effort is comprised of two major components, the Fuels Product Line (FPL) that provides tools for fuel performance analysis and the Reactor Product Line (RPL) which provides tools for reactor performance and safety analysis. This paper provides an overview of the NEAMS RPL development effort.
