  • 2D to 3D model extrusion

    The creation of three-dimensional numerical models is often complicated by the fact that it is difficult to describe three-dimensional geometry into the computer. A number of different paradigms have been developed for the entry of three-dimensional geometry. Currently, SVOffice 2009 supports two separate paradigms for the entry of three-dimensional geometry in a numerical model. These paradigms ...

  • 3D Model Slicing

    Complex site designs create a real challenge to traditional 2D cross-sectional modeling. Currently, the majority of projects are approached from a strictly 2D point of view. In other words, site data is collected in 3D and a 2D cross-section is interpolated, with much effort, from sifting through the data, and an analysis finally performed for that particular cross-section. A limited number of ...

  • Modeling geothermal wells using SVHeat and SVFlux

    Numerical modeling of geothermal processes has received increased attention in recent years. The process of installing geothermal heating systems in residential homes and cottages is one application of numerical models. These systems typically involve drilling between one and three wells on a particular property. Heat exchangers then act as a pump and remove heat from the ground in order to heat ...

  • Power Plant Becomes a Model for Cleaner Operation

    A massive coal-fired power plant in western Pennsylvania is turning from one of the worst polluters in the country to a model for how such a facility can clean up its act. Homer City Generating Station is expected to make the transformation in a few years. When it does, it will end four decades of nearly limitless pollution from two of its units that had long escaped regulation. Three years ago ...
