Multiphysics Object Orientated Simulation Environment (MOOSE).

Derek Gaston (pictured) is the head of Idaho National Laboratory's Computational Frameworks Group in the Fuels Modeling and Simulation Department. He has developed a computer software code called the Multiphysics Object Orientated Simulation Environment (MOOSE).

 

MOOSE is a tool for working on many pieces of the nuclear reactor fuel lifecycle, looking at fuel fabrication and fuel performance to try to extend the life of current light water reactors while looking toward the future by simulating new reactor designs that can give cleaner, more sustainable energy. The copyrighted MOOSE is also being used in many non-nuclear settings such as environment cleanup and remediation for chemical spills, carbon sequestration and even oil shale recovery processes.
