Abstract The purpose of the research work is to develop a computational framework to analyse the effects of multiple uncertainties arising in geometrical complex engineering problems which involve the interaction of several physical phenomena. These uncertainties can be associated with material properties, geometrical specifications, boundary and initial conditions. The effects of these uncertainties on important output parameters will be determined using this new numerical framework. The main application of the computational framework will be in the area of spatially coupled nuclear/CFD applications such as future (Generation IV) nuclear fission reactors fuel processing and nuclear waste repositories
