Introduction to the Fusion Technology Facilities 1:05
The Fusion Technology Facilities (FTF) is UKAEA’s new centre of excellence for meeting the challenges that will be faced when building future fusion power stations.
Introduction to the Hydrogen-3 Advanced Technology (H3AT) centre 1:05
Hydrogen-3 Advanced Technology (H3AT) is UKAEA’s world-class facility for expertise in developing tritium-related technology and research.
Software developed at CCFE and made available for research collaborators.
FISPACT-II is a multi-physics platform providing a wide variety of advanced simulation methods and employing the most up-to-date and complete nuclear data for both neutron and charged-particle interactions.
PROCESS is a System code that explores the conceptual design and feasibility of a future fusion power plant. It finds a set of parameters that optimises criteria chosen by the user (such as cost of electricity or ratio of fusion power to input power), while being consistent with the inputs and the specified constraints.
SPILADY is a spin-lattice molecular dynamics simulation code for undergraduate students, scientists and researchers.
Bluemira is an integrated inter-disciplinary design tool for future fusion reactors. It incorporates several modules, some of which rely on other codes, to carry out a range of typical conceptual fusion reactor design activities.
