Software Summary


The software employed to solve for cooling tower thermal performance is presented here. All the dialog windows of the proprietary software that I use to solve for a multitude of wet-cooling tower questions are shown below. Refer to the User Manual of the software for more information on all the dialog windows and operation of the software. Hybrid cooling towers are analysed by another proprietary software package and is not included in the software presented here.
