Cenaero contributed to the numerical assessment of the indications discovered in the reactor pressure vessels of Tihange 2 and Doel 3

[6/06/2013]

During the last months, Cenaero has contributed to the numerical assessment of the indications discovered in the reactor pressure vessels of Tihange 2 and Doel 3. The expertise of Cenaero's engineers in Fracture Mechanics combined with the use of Morfeo/Crack and their HPC resources made possible the computation of a large number of flaws configurations considering their interactions in different loading conditions. The XFEM implemented in Morfeo/Crack makes affordable this kind of computations which are behind the standard modelling practice.

The quality of the works and the capacity to respond rapidly have been acknowledged by Electrabel and Tractebel Engineering.
