LOK, a seismic network preformance analysis tool

When planning a new seismic network or upgrading the existing one it is often desirable to be able to predict the performance of the future network. At least to some extent. LOK is a software tool that enables such estimates.


GUA - gas usage analysis software tool

GUA - gas usage analysis is a gas usage model development software.

KRESS, a freeze-drying (lyophilisation) simulation tool

A finite-difference based simulation tool enables simulation of temperature, water content and partial pressures during primary and secondary drying stages.
