Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

Developers of simulation packages are now able to take advantage of the increase in available desktop computing power to expand the capabilities and usability of their programs. This paper will illustrate these opportunities by discussing the different techniques the developers of the TRNSYS software package have used to try and create a synergy between TRNSYS and external programs and between the developers and users of the program.
