Supercomputer to design new nuke plants

By / May 27, 2010

The “Jaguar” – the most powerful computer in the world – will be used to design the next generation of nuclear reactors, according to an Oak Ridge National Lab press release. The goal is to integrate existing nuclear energy and nuclear national security modeling and simulation capabilities with high-performance computing to simulate radiation in order…
