Expert Group on Multi-scale Modelling of Fuels (M2F)
Under the guidance of the Nuclear Science Committee (NSC) and under the mandate of the Working Party on Multi-scale Modelling of Fuels and Structural Materials for Nuclear Systems(WPMM), the objective of the Expert Group on Multiscale Modelling of Fuel (EGM2F) is to share and support the development of a multi-scale modelling approach of fuels in support of current fuel optimisation programmes and innovative fuel design.
Assess the worldwide multi-scale modelling approaches devoted to nuclear fuels from the atomic to the macroscopic scale in order to share and promote such approaches;
Address all types of fuels: both current (mainly oxide fuels) and advanced fuels (such as minor actinide containing oxides fuels, carbide, nitride, metallic fuels);
Address key engineering issues associated with each type of fuel;
Assess the quality of existing links between the various scales and define the remaining development necessary to strengthen multi-scale modelling approaches;
Identify the most relevant experimental data or experimental characterisation techniques that are missing for validation of fuel multi-scale modelling;
Promote exchange between the actors involved at various scales;
Promote exchange between multi-scale modelling experts and experimentalists.
