Ventsim™ 4.0 Now Available!

Ventsim Visual 4We are proud to announce the release of the latest version of our Ventsim software;
Ventsim™ 4.0.

Ventsim™ 4.0 comes with many new features, including:

  • Performance Improvements - improved heat, gas and contaminant simulation speed and accuracy, particularly with non recirculating models.
  • Staging Control - a lock/unlock feature has been added to automatically recognise all changes made to a stage. This allows easy customisation, variation and duplication of new stages.
  • Fuel Burn - heating fuels can be directly burnt into airflow.
  • Video Capture - record your on-screen Ventsim™ work to a movie file for use in presentations.
  • New Import Libraries - support added for Microstation DGN files, all Autocad versions (up to 2014), import/display of TEXT, and rendering of 3D extruded solid shapes.
  • New UNIT manager - for multiple unit types and extensions.
  • New FAN manager - import of actual PDF fans curves, fan blade variants, fan installation restrictions, and digitising of FAN curves with mouse via import fan sheet.
  • Air Density Reference - all friction factors and resistance can be referenced to any air density.
  • Reference Graphic Texturing - Photographic textures and pictures (such as satellite images or aerial photos) can be placed over 3D surfaces. Scanned mine plans can also be imported as a 3D textures for tracing over.
  • LiveVIEW™ Asynchronous Data Collection - simulation modelling performance during data collection is significantly improved.

Processing PlantWe have been busy developing our new Pumpsim™ pumping simulation software. Utilising the familiar interface and graphics of Ventsim Visual™, Pumpsim™ is designed to model and simulate water networks, such as pumping and dewatering systems in mines and processing plants, and will be an exciting addition to our range of software.
