The OECD NEA Data Bank is an international centre of resources which aims to make scientific tools available to the nuclear science and technology community and to organise training courses. The Computer Program Services (CPS) of the Data Bank are in charge of:
Nominated establishments within NEA Data Bank participating countries are granted access to the Computer Program Services (CPS) of the Data Bank. For NEA Data Bank participating countries, the nomination process is described in the diagram below. The process requires a nominated Liaison Officer (LO) for the establishment where the end-user makes a request. In the event your establishment does have a LO but is within a Data Bank participating country, please contact us for more information. If your establishment is not within the Data Bank participating countries, please consult the rules for non-participating countries.
Each nominated establishment has a Liaison Officer. The tasks and duties of Liaison Officers are detailed in this document. Liaison Officers are the main contact person between their establishment and the Data Bank Computer Program Services. In particular, they are responsible for (but not only):
Liaison Officers are nominated by members of the Management Board for the Development, Application and Validation of Nuclear Data and Codes, which oversees the work of the Data Bank, including the CPS.
Once you have found the package you wish to obtain from the computer program catalogue, you can request it by clicking on the package ID (in blue) and following the instructions. Please be cautious when entering your personal details, in particular:
You can also request a package from the catalogue of integral experiment data, handbooks, benchmarks, safety joint projects or legacy books. The Data Bank is part of an intergovernmental organisation. As such, it follows the rules established by its participating countries:
Once your request is validated by the CPS team, an email containing the download link for the selected package (valid for 15 days) is sent to you. We do our best to offer you the most efficient service possible, but please note that failure to provide complete information may result in delays. Please contact us if you have any questions.
The NEA Data Bank serves as the premier international centre of reference for basic nuclear tools, such as computer codes, nuclear and thermochemical data, experimental and evaluated microscopic nuclear data, and benchmark experimental data used for the analysis and prediction of phenomena in the nuclear field. It also maintains and distributes databases developed within the NEA working parties and expert groups, as well as by NEA joint projects.
The NEA Data Bank Computer Program Service (CPS) has been conducting training activities for more than 30 years. These courses provide a unique opportunity to bring together code users from around the world, facilitating exchanges on the use of nuclear computer programs among users and with the code developers.
