Moltres: finite element based simulation of molten salt reactors

Alexander Lindsay, Kathryn Huff
2018 Journal of Open Source Software  
Moltres is a physics application for multiphysics modeling of fluid-fueled molten salt reactors (MSRs) .  ...  Moltres sits on top of the Multi-physics Object-Oriented Simulation Environment (Gaston et al. 2015) and hence uses the finite element method to discretize the governing partial differential equations.  ...  Summary Moltres is a physics application for multiphysics modeling of fluid-fueled molten salt reactors (MSRs) .  ...
