most recently acquired computer codes and data are:
A table summarising codes available for fuel performance modelling has been prepared.
For more details see weekly updated list (on Mondays)
Other useful links about codes has recently been expanded.

Integral Experiments Data Bases
New web site describing the International Reactor Physics Experiments Project (IRPhEP)
Training Courses, Workshops & Tutorials (co-organised with RSICC)
from courses held in autumn 2001
For 2002 we plan tentatively in addition the following training courses/workshops
Tutorials on deterministic radiation transport codes (tentatively end 2002). The intention is to present also recently developed tools for modelling 3D problems, including automated mesh generation, (X-Y-Z), (R-THETA-Z) and the visualisation of the corresponding results to facilitate interpretation and for improved documentation. Methods for 3D Sensitivity Analysis / Uncertainty Analysis should also be demonstrated. The Data Bank Executive Group has strongly recommended the development of such tools. If you are interested in participating, please fill in the form.

At the close of 2001 ...
Another year has passed and the staff of the Computer Program Service wishes to thank all those who have shown continued interest in our services, to those who were patient when we were understaffed and could not respond as quickly as they wished to their requests. Particular thanks go to all those who have contributed new codes or new versions of codes and data sets. We thank them on behalf of all the users. Sharing of codes and data has proven to be of benefit not only to users, but also to authors. Feedback, citation in publications, contact from users often spawning new relations and sometimes buisness, testing for a wider set of applications; these are some of the ingredients that make it worth sharing your work.
We wish you all a happy holiday season and a healthy and successful Year 2002 !
