Moltres is a MOOSE-application code designed for simulation of molten salt reactors.
Moltres documentation can be found at http://arfc.github.io/software/moltres. Doxygen pages are here. Outlines of the kernels and boundary conditions used to construct the Moltres governing equations can be found on the Moltres wiki. Breakdown of a full-fledged Moltres input file can be found here. New Moltres users who have never used MOOSE before are encouraged to check-out its wiki, tutorials, and examples to help understand the underlying Moltres components.
Moltres relies on the MOOSE framework. To install MOOSE please follow the
instructions at http://mooseframework.org/getting-started/. After installing
MOOSE, you can install Moltres by running the following commands in a shell
after changing into the directory holding your MOOSE directory (perhaps
git clone https://github.com/arfc/moltres cd moltres git submodule init git submodule update ./build_libmesh_and_moltres.sh
You may also compile a debug version of Moltres by replacing the last line in
METHOD=dbg make -j8. Note that you should replace
8 with the number of processors available
on your machine.
To ensure that Moltres is functioning properly, run
./run_tests -j8 from the
root of the Moltres directory.
If you ever want to contribute changes to the Moltres repository, make sure you
scripts/install-format-hook.sh before making any commits. This will
ensure that any commits you make adhere to the MOOSE/Moltres C++ style. Pull
requests should be submitted to the
devel branch of the
repository. Each pull request is automatically tested for style and for whether
it breaks any of the core Moltres physics capabilities.
