Open Source Modeling of Molten Salt Reactors
Moltres is a MOOSE-application code designed for simulation of molten salt reactors.
Outlines of the kernels and boundary conditions used to construct the Moltres governing equations can be found on the Moltres wiki. Breakdown of a full-fledged Moltres input file can be found here. New Moltres users who have never used MOOSE before are encouraged to check-out its wiki, tutorials, and examples to help understand the underlying Moltres components.
Moltres relies on the MOOSE framework. To install MOOSE please follow the
instructions at http://mooseframework.org/getting-started/. After installing
MOOSE, you can install Moltres by running the following commands in a shell
after changing into the directory holding your MOOSE directory (perhaps
git clone https://github.com/arfc/moltres cd moltres git submodule init git submodule update make -j8
You may also compile a debug version of Moltres by running
-j8. Note that you should replace
8 with the number of processors available
on your machine.
To ensure that Moltres is functioning properly, run
./run_tests -j8 from the
root of the Moltres directory.
API documentation for those interested in understanding or developing Moltres
can be found here. If you ever want to
contribute changes to the Moltres repository, make sure you run
scripts/install-format-hook.sh before making any commits. This will ensure
that any commits you make adhere to the MOOSE/Moltres C++ style. Pull requests
should be submitted to the
devel branch of the
arfc/moltres repository. Each
pull request is automatically tested for style and for whether it breaks any of
the core Moltres physics capabilities.
