GOTHIC™ is a versatile, general purpose thermal-hydraulics software package. GOTHIC™ solves the conservation equations for mass, momentum and energy for multicomponent, multi-phase compressible flow in lumped parameter and/or multi-dimensional (1, 2, or full 3D) geometries. The ability to combine these different nodalization options in a single model allows GOTHIC™ to provide computationally efficient solutions for multiscale applications.

The complete GOTHIC™ software package provides an integrated analysis environment that includes:

  • a graphical and menu driven user interface (GUI) to prepare a GOTHIC™ model,
  • a numerical solver to execute transient simulations and
  • a post-processor to plot and extract results.
The package includes documentation describing the installation, application, technical basis and qualification of GOTHIC™. Several introductory training modules are also provided to assist new users learning the software. The GOTHIC™ software package can be run on Windows or Linux systems.

Typical applications include the design, licensing, safety and operating analysis of nuclear power plant systems, containments and confinement buildings. However, the fundamental physical models and flexible nodalization options included in GOTHIC™ make the software appropriate for a wide range of applications.

A variety of options are available to purchase the GOTHIC™ software. Please email naisupport@zachrygroup.com for additional details and pricing.
