Version 4.0

As of FISPACT-II version 4.0, the code is tested using a continuous-integration framework on a suite of Docker images. These utilise a set of test cases drawn the FISPACT-II system_tests. The inputs for these are provided with the code and are available to download. Descriptions for all of the tests are provided in the table below.

Note that outputs with the new JSON format are provided in a separate test case for those indicated, and that the core operating systems (Ubuntu 16.04, macOS 10.12 and Windows 10) are tested on all, while a subset are used on the remaining operating systems.

Versions 3.0 - 3.20

Supplied with Version 3.00 of the FISPACT-II software are 185 test input files in the fispQA2010 directory and 324 test input files in the fispQA directory together with test output and log files to illustrate the running of FISPACT-II for a variety of irradiation and cooling scenarios, using all the di erent EAF and ENDF library files and illustrating the use of all the FISPACT-II keywords.

The fispQA test set provides tests that use the now default ENDF format libraries introduced in Version 2 for cross sections, fission yields and decay, and the new CALENDF output files for the probability tables used in calculating self-shielding. It is recommended that you use these libraries rather than the older EAF format libraries as they provide you with better and more extensive nuclear data. The usage of the keywords for the two libraries is almost identical, and if you find an example using nthe EAF libraries then you can easily translate it into an example using the ENDF libraries following the procedure outlined in converting legacy inputs.

Note that some of the test cases issue warnings and some terminate with fatal error messages. The purpose of these test cases is to illustrate the nerrors that are issued if obsolescent keywords are used, or if keywords are used incorrectly in the input file.

While the getting started examples give several introductory simulations and the descriptions provided in the keyword pages give technical descriptions for the required parameters, working examples of each keyword may be found by simple grep probing of the QA folders. For example, a search for uncertainty calculations within the fispQA2010 would return:

.../fispQA2010> grep UNCER Tst_*/*.i
Tst_162deut/test33.i:UNCERT 3
Tst_162deut/test34.i:UNCERT 3
Tst_162prot/test3.i:UNCERT 3
Tst_709fis/test117.i:UNCERT 2
Tst_709fis/test118.i:UNCERT 2
Tst_709fns/Ag.i:UNCERT 2

Reference calculations are provided in the QA folders (again not that some demonstrate errors and error logging) which can be checked by hand or through tools such as diff. It is recommended that new installations be checked by automatic running of the QA suite using the provided scripts. For more description see the installing FISPACT-II section.
