Program Descriptions

From BAWiki

At the BAW-DH there exists a comprehensive collection of software which has been mostly developed by the staff of the BAW-DH. The software was developed to assist engineers in solving practical problems. This page gives you a list in alphabetical order of the most important programs in use. For every listed program a short description of its functionality is available. More than that, you will also find information on closely related programs (fore-runners and after-runners). In addition to this an overview of required and optional input-files is given together with an enumerated list of the output-files generated by the program.


The majority of the programs are written in Fortran (FORTRAN77, Fortran90, Fortran95, Fortran 2003). For details about the Fortran programming language see e. g. Intel Language Reference
