RAPID (Real-time Analysis for Particle-transport In-situ Detection) is developed based on the MRT (Multi-stage Response-function particle Transport) methodology that enables its real-time simulation capability. The current version of RAPID is capable of simulating nuclear systems such as spent fuel pools, spent fuel casks, and reactor cores. RAPID solves for pin-wise, axially-dependent fission density, critical/subcritical multiplication, and detector response. Recently, new algorithm for 3-D fuel burnup (bRAPID) calculation and reactor kinetics (tRAPID) have been developed and benchmarked for test problems. Experimental benchmarking for these latter algorithms are underway using the Jozef Stefan Institute’s TRIGA research reactor.

Further, a multi-user virtual reality system (VRS) has been developed that provides a web application for input preparation, real-time simulation, and output processing and visualization in a virtual environment. For an introduction, please view the following demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Q2ytjBrmXc

Topics to be covered:

  • RAPID’s MRT methodology and formulation
  • RAPID code system and benchmarking
  • VRS-RAPID demonstration
  • Hands-on use by participants

Requirements: There will be access to wireless internet so that the participants can have remote access to VRS- RAPID. The current version of VRS-RAPID is optimized for a Personal Computer using the Google Chrome browser, but it can be accessed through iPad, Tablet, etc. using any other browser. To facilitate establishing individual accounts, participants are encouraged to contact Prof. Haghighat prior to the workshop.
