Our main goal is to develop and publish open source interactive computational course materials for students of Applied Thermodynamics and make them widely available.
We do so on top of the SciPy stack – a Python-based ecosystem of open-source software for mathematics, science, and engineering. (We are not affiliated with or endorsed by SciPy.org nor all the other great open source platform that we make use of and highlight here in any way.)
On our models & algorithms laboratory, we intend to publish well documented and open source implementations of topics of interest in thermodynamics for intermediate level students in thermodynamics and in programming / scientific computing, with complete reference to original journal or textbook publications. This way objective quantitative comparison of classic, stated-of-art and newly proposed methodologies is possible.
On our scientific packages development incubator ee intend to develop research level packages for advanced level graduate students and researchers to fill gaps in the scientific literature of the open source community.
Ours is an open source project in early development stage hosted on the open source community of GitHub. In order to get involved, either reach out via e-mail, or sign up on GitHub and use their collaborative work tools.
