06 Feb 2013 GRABIT Extract (pick out) data points off image files. Author: Jiro Doke

Worked perfectly for me. This is one of the best implementations of a plot digitizer I have ever used. Thanks for sharing your excellent work!

30 Aug 2011 Simpson's rule for numerical integration The Simpson's rule uses parabolic arcs instead of the straight lines used in the trapezoidal rule Author: Damien Garcia

This is a great extension of Simpson's rule. I find it most valuable that this file works correctly for both even and odd length vectors, and that it can correctly handle arbitrary spacing. Also, the method is fully vectorized so it is very fast. Thank you and excellent work!

Thank you for uploading this. Great advice!

23 Apr 2010 Doom 1.3 Fly through a 3D scene like in a first-person shooter in god mode Author: Joerg Buchholz

As a "next generation" engineer who has grown up with this scheme, I found this the most intuitive way to visualize 3D objects. Excellent work and a very creative idea. Thank you!

13 Nov 2013 Co-Blade: Software for Analysis and Design of Composite Blades Analysis and design of composite blades for wind and hydrokinetic turbines Author: Danny Sale Danny

Hi Adam, thanks for the feedback!

When developing Co-Blade, I was using BModes v3.00.00 20-Mar-2008 compiled using double precision linked with NWTC Subroutine Library v1.01.08 26-Sep-2007.

I would first recommend trying this version of BModes, obtained from http://wind.nrel.gov/designcodes/

I will make note to update the documentation concerning the correct BModes version, and feel free to contact again if you have problems, cheers!

First of all Great job!

I have however one issue with BModes. I have the BModes.exe and have made a copy and added it to the directory.

During the system execution of BModes, this is what I get

>> system(['BModes ' SIM.case{iSIM} '_BModes.bmi'])

Running BModes (v1.03.01, 25-Sept-2007, compiled using double precision).
Linked with the NWTC Subroutine Library (v1.01.08, 26-Sep-2007).

Invalid numerical input for file "WindTurbineRef_BModes.bmi".

The error occurred while trying to read id_mat.

Aborting BModes.

Any help as to why BModes is incorrectly executing ?

Amazing work! I'd love to see a blade design tool included. It looks like this is analysis only. User has to supply their own blade definitions.
