RESTRICTIONS: Users from NEADB member countries are advised to order FISPACT-II from the NEA Data Bank. Users from other OECD member countries (specifically 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. Commercial users should also contact UKAEA directly.

3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
C, C++, FORTRAN 2003, PYTHON; PC, Linux, MacOS, and Windows.
RSICC ID C00836MNYCP03. (FISPACT-II 5.0)
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
FISPACT-II is an enhanced multiphysics inventory and source-term code system providing a wide variety of advanced, predictive, spectral, and temporal simulation methods. It employs the most up‑to‑date and complete nuclear data forms for both neutron and charged-particle interactions.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
FISPACT-II uses the numerical Livermore Solver for Ordinary Differential Equations (LSODES), with general sparse Jacobian matrices. Backward differentiation formula (BDF) methods (Gear’s method) in stiff cases advance the inventory, Adams methods (predictor-corrector) are used in non-stiff cases, and the Yale sparse matrix package efficiently exploits the sparsity.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
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, MacOS, and Windows systems. The included Windows executable was run at RSICC on Windows 10, and the Linux executable was run under Ubuntu 20.04.
If recompilation is required, then a current Fortran compiler is needed.
