Enabling validated exascale nuclear science

The field of fusion energy is about to enter the ITER era, for the first time we will have access to a device capable of producing 500 MW of fusion power, with plasmas lasting more than 300 seconds and with core tem- peratures in excess of 200 Million ◦K. Engineering simulation for fusion, sits in an awkward position, a mixture of commercial and licensed tools are used, often with email driven transfer of data. In order to address the engineering simulation challenges of the future, the community must address simulation in a much more tightly coupled ecosystem, with a set of tools that can scale to take advantage of current petascale and upcoming exascale systems to address the design challenges of the ITER era.
