The VERA code suite, the product of CASL, has been developed for the solution of challenge problems facing the Light Water Reactor (LWR) operating fleet. Within CASL, VERA has been demonstrated for a broad range of industry applications including analyses performed for core design, operations, transient safety and component fluence lifetime. VERA is now being deployed for widespread use by the nuclear industry with the issuance of commercial licenses. This panel provides an industry perspective on VERA deployment and use by the nuclear industry as well as future VERA development in the post-CASL era.
