Abstract

Using two different approaches, on-line, web- and system-code based graphical user interfaces have been developed for reactor system analysis. Both are LabVIEW (graphical programming language developed by National Instruments) based systems that allow local users as well as those at remote sites to run, interact and view the results of the system code in a web browser. In the first approach, only the data written by the system code in a tab separated ASCII output file is accessed and displayed graphically. In the second approach, Lab VIEW virtual instruments are coupled with the system code as dynamic link libraries (DLL). RELAP5 is used as the system code to demonstrate the capabilities of these approaches. From collaborative projects between teams in geographically remote locations to providing system code experience to distance education students, these tools can be very beneficial in many areas of teaching and R & D.
