New polls show substantial support for nuclear energy
Sixty percent of respondents in a recent national survey favored the use of nuclear energy, with only 25 percent opposing its use. While the latest Bisconti Research poll focuses on nuclear power and electricity generation, its findings on public interest in climate change and using a spectrum of sources to meet energy needs are consistent with a recent Pew Research Center poll on a broad set of energy policy and climate change topics. The approaches the two online surveys took to measuring public opinion on nuclear energy yielded different numbers but found some common ground.

The fusion environment is inherently complex, in which an adequate understanding of response from a plasma chamber system requires integrated (and in some areas coupled) analysis across multiple disciplines (neutronics, thermo-fluids, structural mechanics, electromagnetism etc). An integrated simulation predictive capability, which utilizes a computer based single CAD geometric model where a detailed simulation of the multi-physics phenomena occurring in a fusion plasma chamber system is performed, is under development and is described in this paper.
