FISPACT Inventory Simulation Platform for Nuclear Observables and Materials Science

FISPACT-II (currently at release version 4.0) is an enhanced multi-physics platform providing a wide variety of advanced simulation methods and employing the most up-to-date, TENDL-2017, ENDF/B-VIII.O, JENDL-4.0, JEFF-3.3, etc., enhanced nuclear data forms for neutron, proton, alpha, deuteron or gamma particles interactions. FISPACT-II is a true 21st century simulation platform of observables for nuclear sciences and technology, written in object-style Fortran with full dynamic memory allocation and uncertainty quantification and propagation, with applications in:

  • Magnetic and inertial confinement fusion
  • Advanced fission Gen IV and beyond
  • Advanced energy and fuel systems
  • High energy and accelerator physics
  • Medical applications, isotope production
  • Earth exploration, astrophysics
  • Homeland security, materials science
  • And more…
