Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation
What does the NEAMS program do?
The Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation (NEAMS) program is a U.S. Department of Energy-Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE) program developing advanced modeling and simulation tools and capabilities to accelerate the deployment of advanced nuclear energy technologies, including light-water reactors (LWRs), non-light-water reactors (non-LWRs), and advanced fuels.
Bison Wins R&D 100 Award
This prestigious innovation awards program celebrates technology research and development, with awardees selected by a panel of industry-leading expert judges from submissions made across the public and private sector.
Argonne leads award-winning collaboration with Kairos Power
After developing code that analyzes the safety of advanced nuclear reactors, scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory recently won a R&D 100 Award. The tool, called the System Analysis Module (SAM) Reactor Analysis Code, uses the latest advances in numerical methods, physical modeling and software engineering to simulate entire nuclear power plants.
U.S. Department of Energy Announces $26.9 Million for Advanced Nuclear Technology
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced funding for three domestic projects that will accelerate advanced nuclear technology development. These projects, valued at $26.9 million including industry cost-share contributions, will allow industry-led teams to advance the state of domestic commercial nuclear capability.
DOE and NRC Collaborate on Advanced Reactor Codes to Accelerate Regulatory Review
NEAMS modeling and simulation tools support non-LWR safety analysis. Several NEAMS-developed modeling and simulation tools, including GRIFFIN, PRONGHORN, Nek5000, BISON, SAM, and MOOSE are utilized in CRAB.
