Advanced Nuclear Systems Group

The Advanced Nuclear Systems (ANS) group runs as its major activity the FAST project launched in 2002.

The current goals of the ANS group are:
  • to study neutronics and nucleonics, thermal hydraulics and fuel behaviour of advanced fast-spectrum nuclear reactors using modern computational tools: TRACE/PARCS FRED, Eranos/EQL3D, Serpent 2, OpenFOAM
  • to evaluate safety of fast reactors developed in Europe, in particular, European Sodium Fast Reactor (ESFR) and Advanced Sodium Technological Reactor for Industrial Demonstration (ASTRID)
  • to analyse innovative design solutions for Generation-IV Molten Salt Reactor
  • to represent Switzerland internationally at GIF, IAEA, OECD, EURATOM
  • to educate young researchers and students, in particular, via the ETHZ/EPFL Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering and EPFL PhD programs

Further information is available via the FAST project homepage
