DIS/Line-of-Sight-Coating



  • User-friendly data input using Excel spreadsheets.
  • Ray-tracing for polygonal surface: parallel hierarchical bounding-box ray-tracing for fast shadowing calculation.
  • Multiple emission sources with multiple emission points per source. The position/rotation and emission direction of each source and/or emission point can be specified by the user. A source can placed on a rigid body so it can move and rotate in a prescribed way.
  • Source intensity distribution can be specified by the user.
    • Exponential cosine intensity distribution (cosine exponent can be specified by the user).
  • Multiple deposition and screening polygonal surfaces. The position/rotation and emission direction of each surface can be specified by the user. A surface can placed on a rigid body so it can move and rotate in a prescribed way.
  • Adjustable coating parameters to account for:
    • Scattering and ricochet effects.
    • Sticking probability based on the incidence angle and the distance to the source.
  • The model can predict the coating thickness distribution on the coating surfaces as a function of time.
  • Advanced visualization/post-processing:
    • Animated colored/contoured surfaces.
    • Cross-section line probes and 2D graphs.
  • Rigid multibody dynamics allows moving and rotating sources, coating surfaces and screening surfaces in a controlled way.
    • Joint models including: spherical, revolute, cylindrical, and prismatic joints.
    • Linear and rotary actuators.
  • Controls.
    • PID controllers for controlling linear and rotary actuators.
    • Control laws can be scripted using built-in scripting languages.
  • Scripting.
    • JAVA script.
    • Python script
  • Support for parallel processing using CPUs and GPUs.
  • Integrated graphical pre-processor and post-processor.
    • Object-oriented architecture.
    • Hierarchical tree editor.
