Main Softwares Overview

Dr. Ion Paraschivoiu has developed world renowned simulation and analysis softwares.

The CARDAAV, CARDAAX and CARDAAS-1D/-3D computer codes, based on the Double-Multiple Streamtube model, have been constantly improved in order to produce an efficient software package appropriate for the needs of VAWT designers and more than 100 authors have cited the research work related to these computer codes.

The CANICE computer code, capable of simulating ice accretion as well as anti-icing on single or multi-element airfoil and wing configurations. CANICE is one of the five major icing simulation codes in the world and has been approved by Transport Canada to be used for the certification of Bombardier aircraft in icing conditions.
