High-Performance Computing

ORNL’s OLCF provides large-scale nuclear engineering analysis. Almost all nuclear engineering simulations performed at OLCF have been accomplished using ORNL-designed applications such as Shift, Denovo, and VERA. Ongoing development activities for the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) provide unique tools capable of best utilizing emerging hardware enhancements on currently available hardware and beyond.

ORNL computing and computational sciences teams are leading initiatives to development applications for quantum computing, and opportunities exist to investigate algorithms that implement computational nuclear engineering approaches using this emerging hardware.
