Tutorial: Creating a Model from a CAD File (VIDEO)
This video will teach you how to create a Ventsim™ model from an existing CAD file.
Tutorial: Reference Graphics Layers and Stages
This new feature allows reference graphics objects to be assigned to primary or secondary Ventsim™ layers so that all or part of the graphic can be hidden depending on the type of view chosen.
Tutorial: Staging Airways
Staging is a term representing the ability of Ventsim™ to create multiple versions of similar models in a single simulation file.
Tutorial: Sins of Mine Air Recirculation
Recirculation can be defined as any portion of mine airflow that travels through the same area more than once. Recirculated air has a number of undesirable and possibly dangerous consequences.
Tutorial: Introducing VentLog™ Software
Chasm Consulting introduces a new software package to help manage recording underground measure ventilation information.
Tutorial: Gas Simulation (Advanced Version)
The new Gas Simulation feature in Ventsim™ provides a powerful tool for simulating the spread of different gas mixtures through a mine.
Tutorial: Fan Simulation in Ventsim™
Ventsim™ has a range of powerful facilities to simulate and estimate fan performance in a ventilation model.
Tutorial : Setting Custom Icons in Ventsim™
Custom Icons are a great way to more clearly show ventilation infrastructure icons or equipment within your ventilation model.
Tutorial : Optimizing Ventsim™ Display Speed
Ventsim™ uses the latest 3D technology to deliver unparalleled speed and animation to ventilation models.
Tutorial : Dynamic Contaminants (Advanced Version)
Dynamic Contaminants offer a way to simulate the second-by-second spread of a contaminant through a mine. This simulation differs from the normal 'steady state' contaminant and gas simulations in that ventilation models can show contamination progress and concentration at any time.
Tutorial : Advanced Mine Air Recirculation
Users of Ventsim™ Advanced can use new recirculation simulation routines, to test and calculate recirculation through every single airway in the mine simulation model.
Tutorial: Validating Your Ventsim™ Model
One of the most critical requirements of a Ventsim model is that it accurately represents the ventilation conditions in your mine. Without an accurate representation of current conditions, future design using the model will not be accurate and could provide misleading or incorrect results.
Tutorial: Auditing of a Ventsim™ Model
An important in part of creating ventilation models in Ventsim™ is to check or audit the model before final release …
Tutorial: What is Mine Resistance?
Mine Resistance is the combined total of the resistance of all air moving through the mine, and is a useful figure to know, because it can be combined with Atkinsons turbulent flow pressure equation P=RQ2 to assist in calculating how much additional (or reduced) pressure may be require to achieve a certain volume flow of air through a mine.
Tutorial: Ventsim™ 4 Fan Curves
The tedious job of accurately entering fan curve data has been solved. Ventsim™ 4 introduces fan curve digitizing, where actual fan curve data sheets can be imported into Ventsim™ and quickly entered into the Ventsim™ fan database.
Tutorial: Photographic Textures
Ventsim™ 4 introduces photographic texturing, a process where pictures can be overlaid across 3D reference surfaces previously imported into Ventsim™.
Tutorial: Creating a Basic Model (VIDEO)
This video will teach you how to use Ventsim™ to create basic ventilation models and run simple simulations.
