Framework and main objective

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 (M2F) is to share the development of a multi-scale modelling approach of fuels in support of current fuel optimisation programmes and innovative fuel design.

The objectives of the Expert Group on Multiscale Modelling of Fuel (EGM2F) are:

Associated deliverables

Deliverable 1: report from the Task Force on `Unit mechanisms of gaseous FP release”.

Deliverable 2: report from Task Force on ‘Nuclear fuel micromechanics’

Contribution to the organisation of a workshop on fuel multi-scale modelling:The EGM2F will be involved in the organisation of workshops on fuel modelling (e.g. MMSNF).
