Importance of arithmetical proofs
The importance of computer based arithmetical proofs (simulations) is risen from the beginning of the nuclear energy until today enormously and will also gain to importance in the future. 15 years ago it was still possible to change a bend without doing any arithmetical proof, but nowadays in the most cases even a change of an actuator for fittings is not possible anymore without arithmetical proof. The reason for this is that on the one hand today the means – computer programs – and the possibilities – high-performance computer – are available. On the other hand if a calculation model exists very precise statements can be made in a short time by numerical calculation with respect to consequences of hardware changes.
By the two topics fluid and thermodynamics and structure and stress mechanics we cover a wide range of technical proofs for nuclear power plants. Therefore we are able to provide complete solutions for complex interdisciplinary tasks.
