Artificial intelligence for the Simulation of Severe AccidentS (ASSAS)
From November 1st, 2022, the SACRE group of PSI LRT participates as an associated partner in the 4 year EU Project "ASSAS" (Artificial intelligence for the Simulation of Severe AccidentS), funded by EURATOM.
The ASSAS project aims at developing a proof-of-concept severe accident simulator based on ASTEC (Accident Source Term Evaluation Code). The prototype basic-principle simulator will model a simplified generic Western-type pressurized light water reactor. It will have a graphical user interface to control the simulation and visualize the results. It will run in real-time and even much faster for some phases of the accident. The prototype will be able to show the main phenomena occurring during a SA, including in-vessel and ex-vessel phases.
