The accurate modeling of nuclear reactors is essential for design, regulation, safety analysis, operations and forensic analysis. Geant4 as a framework for general computer simulation pf particle tracking in complex environments and materials. We have begun applying it to the case of modelling the neutronics in a nuclear reactor. In this link you can follow a recorded Ener-Connect Webinar delivered on behalf of our Group Modeling Pebble Bed Type High Temperature Gas Cooled Reactors Using Particle Transport Code.
The recorded presentation can be found here.
