Advanced Simulation Capability for Environmental Management (ASCEM)

Advanced Simulation Capability for Environmental Management (ASCEM)

ASCEM is being developed to provide a tool and approach to facilitate robust and standardized development of performance and risk assessments for cleanup and closure activities throughout the EM complex. The ASCEM team is composed of scientists from eight National Laboratories. This team is leveraging Department of Energy (DOE) investments in basic science and applied research including high performance computing codes developed through the Advanced Scientific Computing Research and Advanced Simulation & Computing programs as well as collaborating with the Offices of Science, Fossil Energy, and Nuclear Energy.  The mission of ASCEM is to develop a modular and extensible open-source, high performance computing (HPC) modeling system for multiphase, multi-component, multi-scale subsurface flow and contaminant transport, and source-term degradation, enabling robust and standardized future performance and risk assessments for EM cleanup and closure activities.
