University of California, Irvine case study

Students and researchers in the mechanical and aerospace engineering department at the University of California, Irvine work in a variety of areas, including continuum mechanics, power, propulsion, and environment, micro/nanomechanics, and systems and design. One area of focus for the department is fluid mechanics – how fluids move and the forces on them. Research and advances in fluid mechanics can be applied to scientific disciplines such as aerospace and oceanography as well as other disciplines where understanding of flows is valuable such as traffic management or stock market modeling.

Princeton University case study

Dr. Martin Wikelski strives to understand factors affecting biological diversity in the tropics. At his research site on Barro Colorado Island in the Republic of Panama, Dr. Wikelski and his team use their automated telemetry system to conduct pioneering work through automated radio-tracking of tagged animals, a feat never before accomplished on a large scale in a tropical forest.

University of Saskatchewan case study

Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan in the department of obstetrics and gynecology are use PV-WAVE to create visual data analysis (VDA) applications to conduct an in-depth study on aspects of infertility and contraception. The distinctions that they can now make are important in understanding the processes associated with infertility and conception and are helpful in making more accurate predictions based on their data.

University of Hamburg case study

Applications of X-ray scattering to soft matter have advanced considerably within recent years, both conceptually and technically – mature high-power X-ray sources, synchrotrons and rotating anodes, as well as high-speed detectors have become readily available. High-quality time-resolved experiments on polymer structure can now be performed with ease, a major advancement due to the genuine power of the scattering method. Dr. Norbert Stribeck, of the Institute of Technical and Macromolecular Chemistry from University of Hamburg in Germany, uses PV-WAVE to simulate and analyze the properties of polymer materials.

University of Alabama - CRML case study

The Cardiac Rhythm Management Laboratory at the University of Alabama at Birmingham uses PV-WAVE for more efficient analysis of the causes and potential treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. They are able to increase productivity and significantly reduce development time for researchers because PV-WAVE has rapid application development, a flexible programming environment, and cross-platform compatibility.

RWTH Aachen, Cardiovascular Laboratory case study

Researchers at RWTH in Aachen, Germany are use PV-WAVE to analyze cardiovascular data collected in experiments. The primary goal of conducting these tests is to understand the performance of human cardiovascular systems under the extreme conditions that occur in air and space travel. With PV-WAVE they have the ability to interact with data and the user can experiment on the basis of a real event by adding or changing parameters.

Paul Scherrer Institute case study

Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute are using PV-WAVE to display and analyze the differences between proton dose distributions with state-of-the-art photon planning methods. This application will identify if there are strong differences shown between the effectiveness of proton radiotherapy and the widely used photon therapy techniques.
