The archive file kernel.zip contains the files:

lar12524.txt the original program description from COSMIC
readme.txt general description
kernel.f90 the complete source code in modern Fortran
original.src the original copy of the source code (from COSMIC)
Sample cases for this program are:
case1.inp input data for sample case 1
case1.out output data for case1.inp

To compile this program for your machine, use the command

gfortran kernel.f90 -o kernel.exe

Linux and Macintosh users may prefer to omit the .exe on the output file name.

It is best if you compile the programs using your Fortran compiler with the appropriate options for your computer system. If you do not wish to do this, you may download kernelexecs.zip containing the files kernel.exe, kernel.mac, and kernel.lnx, the executable program for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, each compiled generically for an Intel CPU.

To launch the program, enter


at the command line. The program asks for the name of the input file and proceeds to the end of the computation. The structure of the input file must conform to the input guidelines as described in the users guide in Appendix H of NASA CR-114895 (see reference page). A file called kernel.out is produced as output.
