Increase productivity while shortening 'time-to-market'

Our software engineering discipline is built from a broad base but provides a holistic approach to the development and application of software products. This enables us to help customers increase productivity while shortening 'time-to-market' and improving technical performance, safety and reliability.

We have been working in partnership with many of our customers, across both the public and private sectors, for more than 30 years, providing high-quality software products, and in-service support and training if required. Many of our software engineers are also technical domain specialists, so they are experts in translating the specific requirements of a technical discipline into effective, user-friendly software products that can make a real difference to the delivery of engineering, design, technical advice or business analysis for you.

We provide specialist services throughout the whole software life cycle, including:

  • Optioneering
  • Requirements capture
  • Agile development
  • Systematic testing
  • Product delivery systems

Technical support and user training are also available post-delivery, and these lifetime support services currently are being delivered to customers in more than 50 countries worldwide.

The ANSWERS Software Service

Wood's ANSWERS Software Service produces and maintains software products that support many facets of nuclear power generation, including reactor operation, fuel cycle, decommissioning and waste management. ANSWERS underpins our high-quality software and consultancy services for customers worldwide in the areas of reactor physics, radiation shielding, dosimetry, nuclear criticality, well logging and nuclear data.

Examples of the ANSWERS codes include the MCBEND and MONK programmes. MCBEND is a Monte Carlo program for general radiation transport. It can be used for radiation transport problems in shield design, dosimetry and industrial applications. MONK, also a Monte Carlo program, is used for nuclear criticality safety and reactor physics analyses. Its advanced geometry modelling capability and detailed continuous energy collision modelling treatments provide realistic 3D models for an accurate simulation of neutronic behaviour to provide the best estimate of the effective neutron multiplication factor.

Wood’s ConnectFlow software package offers industry-leading capabilities in the representation of fractured rock hydrogeology and hydrogeochemistry. The software provides a discrete representation of rock fractures and their role as fluid conduits, as well as the more classical porous medium representation of other types of geology. Uniquely among subsurface flow modelling software, ConnectFlow also offers the option to construct embedded models that integrate these two concepts.

A variety of physics are supported to address a wide range of subsurface issues relating to geological disposal of radioactive waste, rock engineering, well performance, and assessing the migration and remediation of contaminants. A graphical user interface (GUI) provides users with advanced visualisation tools that can be applied to a wide range of three-dimensional subsurface data formats; the GUI can also be used to construct and run ConnectFlow models from within the graphical environment.
