Abstract
A versatile and powerful systems analysis code has been written to assess the attractiveness of proposed induction linac‐driven heavy‐ion fusion (LIA‐HIF) system options and aid in the assessment of R&D needs. This code was created as a part of the DOE‐Sponsored Heavy‐Ion Fusion Systems Assessment Project (HIFSA). The code is structured to enable investigation of a large and continuously variable design and operating parameter space. This was possible by modeling the systems with continuous algorithms which define all the necessary interface and system parameters. The code calculates and displays descriptive design, performance, and operational parameters along ...
