Ph.D. Thesis in Nuclear Fusion
Worked on computational modeling of plasma and nuclear modeling, including post-processing.
In this project, I used:
• Magnetohydrodynamics, modified computational fluid dynamics, and variational calculus for the relaxation of merging magnetic flux ropes in plasmas;
• Monte Carlo N-particle (MCNP), LAMMPS molecular dynamics, and SRIM and TRIM based on binary collision approximation for synergistic effects of plasmas and neutrons in fusion materials.
