Joshua Hansel (MS+PhD). For his MS, Josh worked on subchannel model development in ORNL’s AMP code. For his PhD, we investigated the intriguing work of Flux-Corrected Transport (FCT) and its application to radiation transport. Even though FCT has ‘flux’ and ‘transport’ in its name, it is a technique developed for fluid flow applications, aiming at mitigating spurious oscillations appearing at shock locations. We brought FCT to the transport world, but it was not an easy task! Josh’s work led to 1 journal publication.
Josh is now a staff member at INL, in the MOOSE and RELAP-7 teams.
