 NuScale Will Expand its SMR Simulation Designs

NuScale Power says it is expanding its use of engineering simulation solutions from ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS).

NuScale will use the ANSYS technology to simulate designs for module containment, thermal hydraulics and structural integrity of reactor power modules, instead of relying on physical prototypes and testing.

The multiyear agreement will give NuScale access to ANSYS structures and fluids suites as well as access to high-performance computing solutions to accelerate design and minimize time to market in developing small modular reactor (SMR) prototypes.
