Event description

Description

Politecnico di Milano and Milano Multiphysics are glad to announce the first summer school on "OpenFOAM for multiphysics modeling of Nuclear Reactors".

During the school, you will be guided through a full multi-physics modeling of a nuclear reactor. You will learn how to tailor the available OpenFOAM CFD solvers to the needs of nuclear reactor analysis, how to create new solvers for neutronics, and how to couple OpenFOAM to a Monte Carlo code like Serpent. The Summer School will include both frontal lectures and interactive tutorials.

At the end of the school, you will be able to independently develop and use modern tools for the multi-physics analysis of nuclear reactors, and to translate these competences into advanced applications for industry and research.

The school will be hosted at the Politecnico di Milano, Bovisa campus.



Program

A detailed program will soon be available.

Lecturers:

  • Manuele Aufiero, Milano Multiphyics

  • Carlo Fiorina, Milano Multiphysics / EPFL

  • Stefano Lorenzi, Politecnico di Milano

  • Ivor Clifford, Paul Scherrer Institut

  • Riku Tuominen, VTT - Serpent development team



Registration

The deadline for the registration is June 1st, 2018.

The cost of the registration is 900 Euro (VAT included) and includes lectures, teaching material, lunches (Tuesday to Friday), coffee breaks and a social dinner.

Hurry up! In order to guarantee a high quality of the teaching and the tutoring, only a limited number of tickets are available.



Prerequisites

Participants are expected to possess a solid background in nuclear engineering. In addition, participants should be able to use OpenFOAM and Serpent at a basic level.

To be able to run the Serpent code during the tutorial sessions, participants should have their own Serpent license (additional information available at http://montecarlo.vtt.fi/ )

Participants that are not confident about their basic skills in OpenFOAM and Serpent are encouraged to contact us at contacts@milanomultiphysics.com.



Location

The summer school will take place on Bovisa Campus of Politecnico di Milano.

Bovisa campus is well connected to any part of the city thanks to two suburban railway stations (Milano Bovisa Politecnico and Milano Villapizzone). A map with underground and suburban railway stations can be found here. Additional information on trains reaching the Bovisa campus on Trenord website.

Reaching Milan by plane:

  • from Malpensa airport: railway connection that leads directly to Central Station or to the Bovisa Campus. In addition, bus service from the airport to the Central Station of Milan, with a bus every 20 minutes.

  • Linate airport: bus connection to the city center. In addition, bus service from the airport to the Central Station of Milan, with a bus every 30 minutes.

  • from Bergamo-Orio al Serio Airport: bus service from the airport to the Central Station of Milan, with a bus every 30 minutes.



Accommodation

A nearby (walking distance) guest-house offers rooms at the special rate of 60 Euro/night, or 30 Euro/night for a bed in a shared double room, from Monday to Friday. Rooms are located in one or two bedroom apartments with kitchen and 2 restrooms. Subject to availability. If interested, please contact us (contacts@milanomultiphysics.com) before March 31st.
