ARCHIE Project description: 500 GB
Potential output of the project:

Describe the immediate outcomes from the project, such as new KE funding, new collaborations, new Intellectual Property, prototype, new spin-out company, or licenses.
• Software that will be used for the predictive modelling of quasi-static fracture propagation as part of a nuclear safety case for plant life extension.
• A sustainable model for the support of this software (e.g. service agreement, spin-out, further KE funding).
• A library of benchmark problems that we can solve.

Impacts
Given the looming energy gap due to delays in new build nuclear, plant life extension is very significant for UK’s energy security. The plan is for our software to be used as part of the safety case for plant life extension.
