Fauske & Associates, LLC (FAI) provides technical expertise and program guidance for the storage, processing and disposal of nuclear, chemical and defense waste and for process and safety analysis to support Decontamination & Decommissioning (D&D) of nuclear and hazardous material facilities. Our three product areas for waste technology and D&D are (1) Process and safety models and analyses (2) Experimental facilities for hazard quantification and (3) The FAI developed and maintained FATETM software. FATETM is used for process design and safety evaluations related to waste technology, process engineering and safety and decommissioning and dismantling. It can consider engineering process components as well as facility design.
Using FATETM software, FAI can calculate temperatures, pressures, flow rates and compositions for fluids, gases and structures associated with waste management process Decontamination & Decommissioning (D&D). It is uniquely suited to nuclear facility operations because it combines models for fluid flow and heat transfer with models for aerosol transport and deposition, explosions and fire. FATETM has been applied to dozens of United States Department of Energy (DOE) and commercial nuclear applications and its predecessor code was awarded a DOE Silver Award for Technology Innovation at Hanford.
