Energy Applications

Application Area Technical Lead: Tom Evans, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Energy Applications focus on the modeling and simulation of existing and future technologies for the efficient and responsible production of energy to meet the growing needs of the United States.

These applications generally require detailed modeling of complex facilities and multiple coupled physical processes. Their goal is to help overcome obstacles to the efficient and safe delivery of energy. The Energy Applications activity encompasses the research areas of combustion, nuclear energy, fusion energy, wind energy, chemical energy, and particle accelerators. The specific projects involved are listed below.
