The Arktika, Russia’s latest nuclear-powered icebreaker, sailed from the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg last week, bound for the Murmansk seaport. The voyage is scheduled to take approximately two weeks, during which time the vessel will be tested “in ice conditions,” according to Rosatom, Russia’s state-owned atomic energy corporation.

A system has been developed to fulfill the entire coupled multiphysics analysis cycle for the design and analysis of complex fusion reactor components. It provides advanced modeling capability for converting computer-aided-design geometries to Monte Carlo (MC) geometries by employing constructive solid geometries and unstructured meshes. It also realizes the generic multiphysics coupling of the MC neutronics, computational fluid dynamics, and finite element thermal and structural analyses. This system is a seamless, extensible, and generic system that has been intensively verified for fusion applications.
