CEETRON | 3D VISUALIZATION
Ceetron AS, a 3D Visualization software provider since 1995, offers advanced 3D visualization products and solutions to customers within energy, marine, aerospace and automotive industries. The product portfolio comprises software developer tools and desktop applications.
GLview Developer Suite consists of technology components and software tools for development of advanced 3D visualization and post-processing applications. GLview Express Writer and GLview Visualization API are object libraries for integration and embedding with Finite Element and Computational Fluid Dynamics simulators and solvers.
GLview End User Suite is the engineering world’s equivalent to Adobe Acrobat®. GLview Inova is a fully featured post-processor. GLview Inova support standard simulation codes such as ABAQUS, ANSYS, I-DEAS, LS-DYNA, MSC.Marc, MSC.Nastran, PAMCRASH, RADIOSS, CGNS and Fluent. The analysis results can subsequently be distributed in a compressed file to clients, partners, colleagues and management by utilizing the free tools GLview Express and GLview 3D Plugin (similar to Adobe Reader®).
CHAM | PHOENICS CFD SOLVER
WindSim employs the PHOENICS CFD solver, which is owned and developed by Concentration Heat And Momentum Limited (CHAM.) It is PHOENICS which has been used under license since December 2002 as the wind-flow simulator underlying, and interfacing with, our own Wind Farm Design Software product WindSim.
PHOENICS is a powerful multi-purpose Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software package. PHOENICS provides an accurate, reliable, cost-effective, and easy-to-use tool to simulate a range of processes involving fluid flow, heat or mass transfer, chemical reaction and/or combustion in engineering equipment and the environment.
With the longest history of validation and a large user base, it is not surprising that PHOENICS has a proven track record in nearly every branch of science and engineering in which fluid flow plays a key role.
Many organizations large and small, including WindSim are using PHOENICS to sharpen their competitive edge in the research and development of products and processes involving fluid flow and heat transfer.
MICROSOFT | .NET FRAMEWORK
The .NET Framework is an integral Windows component that supports building and running the next generation of applications and XML Web services.
The .NET Framework is designed to fulfill the following objectives:
- To provide a consistent object-oriented programming environment whether object code is stored and executed locally, executed locally but Internet-distributed, or executed remotely.
- To provide a code-execution environment that minimizes software deployment and versioning conflicts.
- To provide a code-execution environment that promotes safe execution of code, including code created by an unknown or semi-trusted third party.
- To provide a code-execution environment that eliminates the performance problems of scripted or interpreted environments.
- To make the developer experience consistent across widely varying types of applications, such as Windows-based applications and Web-based applications.
- To build all communication on industry standards to ensure that code based on the .NET Framework can integrate with any other code.
WINDPLANNER | PLANNING AND VISUAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT
Windplanner is a do-it-yourself web application for the planning and visualization of wind projects. It shows the visual impact on the environment in 2D, 3D and VR. You can view the project from any angle, in photorealistic images.
