The National Transport Code Collaboration (NTCC) is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) supported activity designed to facilitate research towards development of fusion energy as a potential energy source for the future. A part of this activity is to provide a mechanism for sharing of commonly used software tools in the modeling of magnetically confined fusion plasmas - the NTCC Modules Library website http://w3.pppl.gov/NTCC.
The NTCC Modules Library codes represent the work of multiple authors from several institutions. Each code is accompanied with instructions for build and use, as well as a summary of capability, often accompanied with references to published literature that gives more detailed descriptions. The documentation contains contact information for the software authors and/or PPPL support personnel. The NTCC codes do not contain any nuclear material information or information that can be used for the design or development of nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons or of any weapons of mass destruction. The code does not contain any proprietary or commercially owned information.
The NTCC website is supported by personnel at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), under grants and contracts funded by the US Department of Energy.
