Students are an important part of the RAMP community! If you are a student interested in using one or more of the RAMP codes, please consider joining RAMP as an official user. Students and university staff have free access to all the RAMP codes and are encouraged to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to expand their skill sets and broaden curricula with codes that are used in industry. See below for other opportunities for both students and educators! If you are looking for more context on how the RAMP codes are used, please visit our RAMP Library to find lists of publications related to the RAMP codes.

Opportunities for Educators

NRC RAMP: GENII - by Caitlin Condon, Bruce Napier, Saikat Ghosh - from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory  (PNNL-SA-157265). PNNL is operated by Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy.

Are you a university educator who would like a RAMP code highlighted in your curriculum? The RAMP team would like to help accommodate your class needs by providing a seminar or guest speaker focused on a RAMP code(s) and an example case relevant to your curriculum. In 2020 and 2021, the RAMP team provided guest lectures virtually on the GENII code and the atmospheric RAMP codes to a variety of classes to support their curriculum. Educators also have access to the code workbooks that have been developed as instructional guides for code beginners; refer to the Workbooks page for more information.

If you are interested in arranging a guest speaker or a seminar for your class on one or more of the RAMP codes, please use the “Contact Us” button to indicate your interest.
