Conditions For Use of NTCC Software Modules

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

While this site allows public download of source code and build procedures for said software, recipients are required to agree to terms of use as outlined below. These terms of use are meant to facilitate ongoing collaboration, continued distribution of fixes and improvements to the software by authors, communication on software performance by users, and appropriate acknowledgement of the authors' contributions.

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.

Terms and conditions for OPEN-ADAS

The user of the OPEN-ADAS system and data (hereinafter "the User") accepts the following terms and conditions:

2. Any downloaded OPEN-ADAS file is made available here for the personal use of the User only. It must not be used for any commercial application, incorporated into any web site or in any form re-distributed without express prior written permission from the ADAS Project. In particular, but not by way of limitation, it must not be:

Permission for OPEN-ADAS data incorporation in non-commercial code/system development for scientific advance will not be unreasonably withheld, but will be subject to written agreement on a case by case basis.

The User will indemnify the University of Strathclyde and keep it fully and effectively indemnified against each and every claim made against the University as a result of the User's use of the data.

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.
