Development of models for ATF fuel for implementation in the European Incident Code ASTEC
Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Process Engineering, Nuclear Engineering (f/m/d)
As part of the development of models for ATF fuel for implementation in the European Incident Code ASTEC, you will be responsible for implementing model improvement in the source code. Furthermore, you will verify the implemented models for ATF fuel rods including experimental data from KIT and other facilities and investigate the behavior of SMR cores loaded with ATF fuel rods as well as with the severe accident code ASTEC. Furthermore, you will be responsible for the documentation as well as publication and presentation of the results.
You have a university degree in mechanical or nuclear engineering (Diplom (Uni)/Master) as well as many years of professional experience in numerical simulations of Small Modular Reactors (SMR) in the fields of neutronics and thermohydraulics. Furthermore, we expect excellent knowledge in programming C, Python, FORTRAN and experience in numerical simulations with CFD, thermohydraulics and neutron physics codes. Personally, you will convince with an independent, responsible way of working as well as a good command of written and spoken English.
