REVE is a project for a virtual reactor designed to simulate the irradiation effects in materials. It includes the following 5 sub-projects : a demonstrator simulating the ageing of vessel steels under irradiation, the coupling of interactive multi-scale codes, the development of N-order ab-initio methods, the effect of irradiation on phase diagrams and finally the application to the case of stress corrosion cracking behaviour of irradiated Zr-Nb alloy. The project is to last 6 years for an estimated cost of $20million.
