NEAMS Workbench

The Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation (NEAMS) Workbench facilitates the use of multiple tools in analysis, including production tools and high-fidelity tools developed in the CASL and NEAMS programs, by providing a common user interface for model creation, review, execution, output review, and visualization for integrated codes. The workbench can provide a common user input, including engineering-scale specifications that are expanded into code-specific input requirements through the use of customizable templates. The templating process enables multi-fidelity analysis of a system from a common set of input data. Expansion of the codes and application templates and automated workflows available in the NEAMS Workbench facilitates system analysis and design. While users of the workbench are required to license and install the appropriate computational tools, the workbench will provide a more consistent user experience and will ease transition from one tool to the next.

Licensing: NEAMS Workbench is available under a three-clause open source software license.
