Description

The objective of the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Energy Advanced
Modeling and Simulation Nuclear Waste Management Integrated Performance and
Safety Codes (NEAMS Nuclear Waste Management IPSC) is to provide an integrated
suite of computational modeling and simulation (M&S) capabilities to quantitatively
assess the long-term performance of waste forms in the engineered and geologic
environments of a radioactive-waste storage facility or disposal repository. These
M&S capabilities are to be managed, verified, and validated within the NEAMS
Nuclear Waste Management IPSC quality environment. M&S capabilities and the
supporting analysis workflow and simulation data management tools will be
distributed to end-users from this same quality environment. The same analysis
workflow and simulation data management tools that are to be distributed to end-users
will be used for verification and validation (V&V) activities within the quality
environment. This strategic decision reduces the number of tools to be supported, and
increases the quality of tools distributed to end users due to rigorous use by V&V
activities. This report documents an evaluation of the needs, options, and tools
selected for the NEAMS Nuclear Waste Management IPSC quality environment.
