RSICC CODE PACKAGE CCC-836

 

1.  NAME AND TITLE

FISPACT-II 3.20 & TENDL-2015, -2014, ENDF/B-VII.1, JENDL-4.0, JEFF-3.2, CENDL-3.1 and GEFY libraries.

 

RESTRICTIONS: Users from NEADB member countries http://www.nea.fr/html/nea/mcdb.html are advised to order FISPACT-II from the NEA Data Bank. Users in Canada and the United States may order these codes from RSICC. Users from non-OECD member countries are advised to contact UKAEA directly at UKAEA. Comercial users should also contact UKAEA directly.

 

2.  CONTRIBUTORS

UKAEA Fusion Association, Culham Science Centre, Abingdon, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom, through the OECD NEA Data Bank, Boulogne Billancourt, France.

 

3.  CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER

Object-orientated Fortran 2003; PC, Linux, MacOS and Windows. RSICC ID C00836MNYCP01. (NEADB NEA-1890/00.)

 

4.  NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED

FISPACT-II is a multi-physics platform providing a wide variety of advanced inventory simulation methods and employing the most up-to-date, enhanced nuclear data forms for neutron, proton, alpha, deuteron or gamma particles interactions with matter

5. METHOD OF SOLUTION

FISPACT-II uses numerical LSODES, Livermore Solver for Ordinary Differential Equations with general sparse Jacobian matrices. Backward Differentiation Formula (BDF) methods (Gear’s method) in stiff cases to advance the inventory, Adams methods (predictor-corrector) in non stiff case, Yale sparse matrix efficiently exploits the sparsity.

               

6.  RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS

None noted.

 

7.  TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Run times vary, (Seconds to Minutes)

 

8.  COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS

FISPACT-II will run on Linux, MacOS and Windows systems.

 

9.  COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS

Executables created by the developers are included for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows systems. The included Windows executable was run at RSICC on Windows 7, and the Linux executable was run under Red Hat Enterprise Linux. A current Fortran compiler is needed if recompilation is required.
