In 1943, J. Robert Oppenheimer, the bright, charismatic head of the ny undertaking, recruited scientists to stay as digital prisoners of the U.S. govt at Los Alamos, a barren mesa thirty-five miles outdoor Santa Fe, New Mexico. hundreds of thousands of fellows, girls, and youngsters spent the struggle years sequestered during this top-secret army facility. They lied to family and friends approximately the place they have been going and what they have been doing, after which disappeared into the desolate tract. during the eyes of a tender Santa Fe widow who was once one in every of Oppenheimer's first recruits, we see how, for all his flaws, he built into an inspiring chief and inspired all these considering the Los Alamos undertaking to make a perfect attempt and attain the unthinkable.

PARET code has been used extensively for research reactor analysis which iteratively solves for the neutronic-hydrodynamic-heat transfer aspect of the reactor under steady state and transient behaviour. , 1996; Housiadas, 2002; Velit and Primm, 2008). Other example is the NESTLE code that solves the two or four group neutron diffusion equations in either Cartesian or hexagonal geometry using the Nodal Expansion Method (NEM) and the non-linear iteration technique. NESTLE was embedded in the thermal hydraulic code RELAP5 obtaining the multi-dimensional neutron kinetics model RELAP53D.

All of the works described above could not be successfully accomplished without the brilliant knowledge and grateful assistance of the instructors and other personnel of the Paks full-scope replica simulator. The help and cooperation of György Nagy, László Dercze, Sándor Borbély, Sándor Czekmeister, József Göttli and others was essential to achieve these results. 8.

It is not possible to provide a detailed list of the key phenomena and code features necessary for each type of code. However, the IAEA proposes basically three criteria to verify the adequacy of the codes for treating important phenomena (IAEA, 2008): a. The use of internationally recognized and accepted codes provides some assurance that the codes are adequate for their intended application. b. Individual codes need to be evaluated on a systematic basis, comparing the intended application of the code with the actual conditions for which the code is applied.
