Transatomic’s engineers identified numerous areas in which CFD simulations would prove essential, one of which involved the reactor’s moderator. The moderator is in the form of zirconium hydride rods clad in silicon carbide (a ceramic which is both extremely durable and works well in nuclear reactors).ANSYS Fluent was used to accurately predict the hottest rod’s temperature profile (below) taking into account an axial heat generation profile and the flowing salt environment.
