    We occasionally get questions related to codes and computational methods.

    There have been considerable advances in computational methods and computational systems in the field of nuclear energy and nuclear engineering. This thread serves to address previous developments and follow current developments.

    The US DOE publishes a journal, SciDAC Review, which reports on the Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) program. It is broad in scope, but there is a component concerning nuclear physics and nuclear engineering.

    There are also several programs within the DOE devoted to computational physics applied to nuclear energy and systems.
