Software & databases

Computer software and databases are an important part of any modern technical industry. Specialized software is used to design and model many processes, support safety analyses, perform complex calculations, etc. Nuclear information databases contain vast amounts of information on nuclear properties, interactions of radiation with matter, nuclear statistics, etc. Access to this "standardized" information helps researchers to cross check their results and calculations against those of others.

Here you will find links to specialized software and databases of interest to nuclear, radwaste and radiation professionals, as well as general interest software, and software development companies.

Note: Some web sites may not be in English. See index here for language codes, such as    JP / EN .
