Space Orbital

The following components of ESATAN-TMS are applicable for space orbital applications:


CADbench provides the thermal engineer with an environment to view and modify the CAD geometry and generate the analysis model. When generating the thermal analysis model from CAD geometry it is common practice to simplify the geometry.


Mission provides a uniquely flexible environment for the thermal analysis of complex orbital mission, including inter-planetary bodies with solar and planet heating.



Radiative provides a powerful environment for modelling any type of application where radiation effects are considered important. It uses enhanced Monte-Carlo ray tracing algorithm with automatic accuracy in calculating view factors or full radiative exchange factors.


Thermal  is  the  underpinning  "engine"  of  ESATAN-TMS  based  on  the  lumped  parameter  formulation.  It  provides  built-in  hierarchical  sub-modelling  facility  as  well  as  a  library  of   subroutine  to  simplify  the  analysis  of  complex  system.                


ThermNV enables the visualisation, inspection and processing of thermal analysis networks, either for model validation or post-processing task such as heat flow inspections and charting.                                             


ThermXL is an add-in for Microsoft Excel, for performing simple thermal analysis within a spreadsheet. It provides an intuitive, easy-to-use thermal modelling environment perfect for conceptual studies, "What if...?" type analysis, etc.


Workbench is an integrated environment with full pre- and post-processing capabilities, providing geometry modelling, visualisation, reporting and analysis case control. It introduces multiple ways of building the geometrical model.
