15th European Workshop on Thermal & ECLS Software

9-10 October 2001
ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands.


The 15th European Workshop on Thermal and ECLS Software was held on the 9-10 October 2001 in ESTEC. It was organised by the Analysis and Verification Section of the Thermal and Structures Division.

The Workshop was intended to have three main purposes:

  • allow and exchange of views on the use of thermal analysis software
  • provide a forum for contact between the developers and the users
  • present new versions of the software and solicit feedback from users


The proceedings of the workshop are made up of the “minutes” – a record of the questions and discussion points raised during the sessions – as well as the schedule, list or participants, and all of the presentations themselves. A printed version of the proceedings will be sent to all of the participants in due course.

In the meantime, an electronic version of the proceedings, and of the individual presentations, will be available here for a limited period. These are all PDF files, and have been generated at screen-resolution for preview using Adobe’s Acrobat Reader

Disclaimer: owing to the inevitable differences between the original authors’ systems, the ESTEC/TOS-MCV machines, and at the end-users’ sites, ESA/ESTEC is unable to guarantee that these documents will produce identical screen or printed output across all combinations of system, font and printer installations.
