Nuclear Science User Facility (NSUF) High Performance Computing (HPC) resources offered through
Idaho National Laboratory provide scientific computing capabilities to support efforts in advanced modeling and simulation. These resources support a wide range of research activities, including performance of materials in harsh environments (such as the effects of irradiation and high temperatures), performance of existing light water and advanced nuclear reactors, and multiscale multiphysics analysis of nuclear fuel performance.
INL HPC computing resources are available to industry, universities, national laboratories, and federal agencies to support research and development. Access is generally granted for research related to the DOE Office of Nuclear Energy and INL’s mission focusing on nuclear energy development, workforce development, and education.
HPC access is provided to users that meet the INL HPC access and usage policy requirements. This policy supports access by industry, universities, and other users that are performing research and development that supports DOE and INL’s missions. The policy is available at:
