Steven Hamilton, an R&D scientist in the HPC Methods for Nuclear Applications Group at ORNL, has led a team for the past 6 years in the development of ExaSMR. Supported by the ECP, the ExaSMR project integrates and optimizes all the codes needed for simulating nuclear reactor designs on exascale supercomputers. “Many different companies are exploring advanced reactor designs, and the high-performance, high-fidelity type of simulations that we’re developing in ExaSMR have a lot of appealing features for their designers,” Hamilton said.
