RAPID Code System and its VRS Environment
Prof. Alireza Haghighat
Nuclear Engineering Program, Virginia Tech, Falls Church, VA, USA
RAPID (Real-time Analysis for Particle-transport In-situ Detection) is developed based on the MRT (Multi-stage Response-function particle Transport) methodology that enables its real-time simulation capability. The current version of RAPID is capable of simulating nuclear systems such as spent fuel pools, spent fuel casks, and reactor cores. RAPID solves for pin-wise, axially-dependent fission density, critical/subcritical multiplication, and detector response.
Additionally, a multi-user virtual reality system (VRS) has been developed that provides a web application for input preparation, real-time simulation, and output processing and visualization in a virtual environment. For an introduction, please view the following demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Q2ytjBrmXc.

Hands-on use by participants
There will be access to wireless internet so that the participants can have remote access to VRS-RAPID. The current version of VRS-RAPID is optimized for a Personal Computer using the Google Chrome browser, but it can be accessed through iPad, Tablet, etc. using any other browser.
