Nuclear Fusion Simulations at Exascale

From the Nu-Fuse website:

Nu-FuSE is an international project (funded through the G8 Research Councils Initiative on Multilateral Research Funding) looking to significantly improve computational modelling capabilities to the level required by the new generation of fusion reactors.

The focus is on three specific scientific areas: fusion plasma; the materials from which fusion reactors are built; and the physics of the plasma edge. This will require computing at the “exascale” level across a range of simulation codes, collaborating together to work towards full integrated fusion tokamak modelling.
