The NEMO (Nuclear Engineering MOdelling) research group has been created by a group of faculties of the Energy Deartment at Politecnico di Torino, sharing a common research interest in the various aspect of mathematical and numerical modelling, with a specific focus on the nuclear engineering field.

The NEMO staff has expertise in the fields of:

  • Physics and engineering of current and innovative fission nuclear systems
  • Deterministic and Monte Carlo methods for neutral and charged particles transport
  • Superconducting magnets and cryogeny for nuclear fusion reactors
  • Analysis of high thermal flux components in nuclear fusion reactors
  • Plasma-wall interactions in fusion reactors
  • Computational thermal Fluid Dynamics (CFD) applications to nuclear and solar systems
  • Probabilistic Risk Asssessment (PRA) and reliability analysis for fission and fusion plants

The NEMO group is involved in international research projects (e.g. H2020 programs on MSR and CSP), national and international collaborations and contracts.
