3D immersive training for field operators

Operators no longer need to go out in the field to get to know an installation, locate valves, or practice emergency procedures. Today, they can train using a 3D immersive model connected to a process simulator: this relays the effect of each operator action on pressure, temperature, and other settings. The innovative solution has now … Read more

ETCS training : The importance of the simulators fidelity by NS

“A simulator that faithfully reproduces the driver’s everyday environment” Interview with Carl Kleibeuker, senior instructor, NS (Netherlands) What factors led to NS choosing its ETCS training simulator? As an instructor, I didn’t get to have a say in which one we chose. However, I did have to give an opinion about how faithful the simulator … Read more

ETCS : using a simulator to prepare and train your staff

CORYS’ ETCS simulator offers operators, infrastructure managers, and certification bodies the perfect way to anticipate this major change. A dozen or so of our clients, spread across seven countries, are already using it. The key feature of this simulator is that it complies with EU SRS standards for Baselines 2 and 3, allowing users to … Read more

Motion systems for simulators : why 5 DOF is better than 6 DOF

No, the 6 DOF motion system is not necessarily the best choice for a full-scope train, subway and tramway simulator. 5 DOF is more realistic, less bulky and not necessarily more expensive. Demonstration. What is the difference between a 5 DOF and a 6 DOF, from the user’s point of view? Not much, just one … Read more

The oil rig relocated, its training simulator adapts

Norway: a reused oil rig and a renovated simulator When a drilling and production platform is renovated and moved to a new site, what happens to its Operator Training Simulators (OTS) In the case of Inspirer, which is being moved from Norway’s Volve oil field to Yme, 200 km away, the OTS comes too! The Inspirer platform, … Read more

Ultralight simulator

The ultralight simulator is now appearing in classrooms, featuring a curved 3-D screen depicting the track and landscape, a 24-inch touchscreen for the console, and two controls for the basic commands. The main advantage is the blend of realism and simplicity. After the fact, this seems obvious, but somebody had to come up with the … Read more

The molten salt reactor, a new horizon for simulation

In collaboration with the CNRS laboratory, CORYS is developing a molten salt nuclear reactor simulator to interact with the process in real-time. This technology is now drawing renewed global attention due to its safety, performance and flexibility. This is enough to attract major industrial players. Since the 1950s, the molten salt reactor has been studied … Read more

Digital Twin : the Challenge of Nuclear Power Plants

Whether it’s airplanes, trains, factories or nuclear power plants, industries that rely on simulation are always seeking to come closer to the ideal goal of a digital twin. In other words, to create a virtual copy of an installation that can develop and guide a project from start to finish. However, in the case of … Read more

THOR Advanced Thermal Hydraulics Models

THOR is a two-phase, non-equilibrium, fluid dynamics model for flow networks. CORYS offers THOR to the simulation industry for modeling complex, multi-phase fluid systems with high fidelity results.  THOR is installed on more nuclear power plant simulators than any other advanced thermal hydraulics model.  The THOR models have been benchmarked extensively through more than 80 … Read more

A fullscope simulator weighing just 740 kg

The fullscope cab simulator to be delivered in early 2017 to Queensland Rail, Australia is three times lighter than a conventional simulator. Not only that – it has a 6-DOF motion platform, offers training for five different trains, and didn’t cost any more than usual. Queensland Rail’s original problem was not one of weight but … Read more

Simulator training for PTC – finding a simulator that meets FRA requirements

Since the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008 was signed into law on October 16, 2008, Class I and commuter railroads have scrambled to integrate the infrastructural and organizational changes required to fully realize Positive Train Control (PTC) by December 15, 2015. In addition to financing entirely new data networks and retrofitting on-board display screens, … Read more
