Andrew Pavlou presented his research at M&C 2015, the annual Joint International Conference on Mathematics and Computation (M&C), Supercomputing in Nuclear Applications (SNA) and the Monte Carlo (MC) Method. The conference was held in Nashville, Tennessee from April 19-23. His presentation was titled, “Implementation of a Least Squares Temperature Fit of the Thermal Scattering Law in MCNP6.”
NEAMS members Andrew Pavlou, Chris Morrison, and Jaron Senecal participated in this year’s ANS Student Conference at Texas A&M University. Chris was a Current Events in Space Nuclear panelist. Jaron presented “Comparison of Coupling Strategies for Solving a Multiphysics Boundary Value Problem Using MOOSE” in the Mathematics and Computation Division. In the same technical track, Andrew presented “A Study of the Frequency Spectrum of Thermal Excitations for On-the-Fly Monte Carlo Thermal Scattering Sampling,” which earned Best Paper.
Gig ‘em Aggies!
A tour of the South Texas Nuclear Generating Station was organized as part of the conference.
