Since its inception more than 40 years ago, ANSYS has been developing simulation solutions that are well suited to address engineering and regulatory concerns and standards in the global nuclear industry. Today, solutions from ANSYS are applied across the entire engineering and design process of the nuclear power lifecycle: mining and processing, plant engineering and construction, fuel systems, thermohydraulic systems, balance of power, spent fuel disposal and regulatory compliance.

ANSYS solutions can aid in modeling and designing these and other environmental applications:

Specific applications for ANSYS engineering simulation software include seismic studies, design of reinforced concrete materials, piping and pressure vessels, welding processes, components, stress and fatigue analysis, containment, nuclear reactor safety, boiling and heat transfer systems, steam generation, drop testing, and spent-fuel processing.
