Images from the VTAS Pre- and Post-Processors

layout screen

VTAS preprocessor layout window.  VTAS contains an extensive set of MATLAB-based GUI windows to enable definition of data center components and how they interact.

postproc

VTAS postprocessor layout window.  The positions specified in the preprocessor layout window are maintained, and the components are color-coded based on heat exchange or exergy destruction.  In transient simulations, the transient heat exchange or exergy destruction of individual components can be plotted versus time for comparison.
