TechnicAtome has thermal-hydraulic, mechanical and electrical test resources dedicated to Nuclear Propulsion, allowing design engineers to validate models and to qualify the equipment for the particular environmental conditions of on-board reactors (temperature, pressure, tilt and impact).
Reactor simulation and modelling physical phenomena
Throughout the life cycle of an on-board reactor TechnicAtome uses simulators to support the design, prepare tests, validate the I & C system, qualify control procedures and operators, analyse operating events, and qualify modifications.
- Develops simulators that accompany the life cycle of each generation of reactors
- Uses dedicated testing facilities to test new concepts and equipment
