- In this paper we overview some current modeling and simulation features of the NRC ESSI Simulator Program, a parallel, nonlinear, time domain finite element program developed to solve dynamic problems for the soil/rock – structure interaction of Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) system. The NRC ESSI Program is part of the NRC ESSI Simulator System, a software, hardware and educational system for high fidelity modeling and simulation of dynamic response of NPPs.
