Atomistic Modelling of Radiation Damage in Nuclear Systems

The atomistic modelling of radiation damage in nuclear material involves simulating the smallest constituent parts of reactor materials and their interactions with energetic neutrons and, in the case of fusion energy research, plasma in the form of free atoms, molecules and ions.

This course provides an introduction to some common computational techniques and popular software packages used to perform these simulations: LAMMPS (molecular dynamics) and SDTrimSP (a Monte Carlo binary collision code).


Computational Nuclear Science and Engineering

Through an interdisciplinary programme of lectures, this course provides students, young researchers, and young professionals with critical skills and tools in areas such as mathematical techniques for modelling and simulation of complex systems, high performance computing, and computational methods for processing and analysing large data sets, applied in nuclear science and engineering.
