INL develops new software

The Idaho National Laboratory has developed open-source software that can be used for simulations.

Computation scientist Cody Permann worked alongside several other scientist, led by Derek Gaston, worked for six years to develop this new Multiphysics Object Oriented Simulation Environment (MOOSE) computer simulation framework.

Scientists and students no longer have to be computer science experts to conduct simulations for real-world experiments.

“We like to maximize their research time and take time away from what they would be spending on development,” said Permann.

The software can simulate anything from nuclear fuel mass and energy transport to ground water physics and chemistry to predict environmental outcomes.

Permann also said this is the first time the lab has been provided software on a public level, for free. You can download the software for free on the INL’s website.
