Nuclear Core and T-H Design Analyses

FNC has a full range of experiences designing both commercial power reactors as well as experimental and research reactors.



Core design and neutronics analysis
Structural integrity of core
Material degradation assessment
Reactor internal structure assessment Coupled neutronics and thermal hydraulics analysis

Reactor core design sets the core with respect to determining fuel enrichment and burnup to maximize the economics while satisfying all the design constraints.

Reactor core design also performs analysis of neutronics characteristics such as power distribution and peaking factors as well as coupled thermal hydraulics analysis of core and fuel.

FNC also provides thermal hydraulic design and analyses by designing and performing experiments, performing analyses with industry standard codes, and also modeling the phenomena.

Thermal hydraulic design and analyses support core design and enables better understanding of phenomena in nuclear power plant, enhancing the nuclear safety and maximizing the efficiency of a nuclear plant.
