GOTHIC™ is a versatile software package for transient thermal hydraulic analysis of multiphase systems in complex geometries. GOTHIC™ solves the conservation equations for mass, momentum, and energy for multi-component, multiphase flow. A multi-block 3D grid with generalized flow connectors to connect the grid blocks is used to model complex geometries and systems. Many specialized features are included to model and control equipment typically found in ventilation and hydraulic systems (pumps, fans, valves, heat exchangers, coolers, heaters, doors, thermal conductors, hydrogen recombiners, etc.). GOTHIC™ applications include analysis for the design, licensing, safety, and operations of nuclear power plant systems, containments, and confinement buildings. The fundamental physical models and flexible nodalization capabilities within GOTHIC™ make the software appropriate for a wide range of applications.

Zachry Nuclear Engineering Inc. offers introductory GOTHIC™ training to help people learn how to use GOTHIC™ and to start getting results. The following standard training packages are available in the U.S.

(International training is also available, please contact NAITraining@zachrynuclear.com for more information).
