Introducing Ventsim LITE

Ventsim LiteVentsim Lite is a free, simplified version of Ventsim Visual™ designed primarily for educational use. This version focuses entirely on incompressible airflow and pressure, and is a great introduction for people learning about mine ventilation and simulation. While this version does not have some of the features of Ventsim Visual Standard, Advanced and Premium, it still retains the 3D graphics and easy functionality of Ventsim Visual.

Ventsim LITE is restricted to ventilation models of less than 500 airways. Ventsim LITE will be offered FREE for all students and teaching staff for educational purposes only. A commercial version of Ventsim LITE with up to 5000 airways is also available at low cost but will be restricted to a single owner license that is not transferable.
