xirrus simulation

xirrus simulation stands for insight and gaining knowledge that is hard to achieve in other ways. Complex interrelations, numerous and intricate scenarios, demanding analyses? Let our computers run and have competent information given to you, instead of racking your own brains.

xirrus simulation bilayer

xirrus simulates the binding of compounds for polymerization at liposome-membrane

for ETH Zurich, Swiss Federal School of Technology, Zurich

For the research on the polymerization of different compounds a) of potential applications in organic electronics with spectroscopic measurements, the distribution of the educt and early intermediates was a key question, since the binding at the substrate b) was considered as probable.
Excerpt of H2 NMR Spectra
species 1species 2
Although species 1 and 2 show differences in NMR measurements, the deduction from experiments of only species 1 binding at the substrate did not hold any longer after the simulation. Both species are within the substrate, species 1 binds to the substrate, species 2 stays mobile in situation b) and is diffusive as it is dissolved in state a). Our molecular dynamics simulations helped analyse deeper the situations than it has been possible by measurements only.

From this scientific cooperation with xirrus the following two publications appeared:

xirrus simulation PE Verbrennung

xirrus simulates combustion and smouldering of plastics and monitors the resultant gases

for the Swiss Federal Roads Office (FEDRO), Swiss Confederation

A comprehensive study examines smouldering and combusting of various plastics. The intermediates and products of incomplete combustion forming thereby are meticulously monitored and recorded — even more efficient and complete that a literature search or experimental measurements. The goal is to find a substance that occurs in all kinds of fires, which could serve as an early warning system in case of fires in favour of road tunnel safety.

xirrus simulation Graphene flake burst

xirrus demonstrates strength of graphene

for Fraunhofer IPA, Stuttgart

One nano-sized flake of graphene has been tested by tensile strength simulations. The single molecule recalculated to material value is about 250 times stronger than steel. It bursts quickly into several pieces. Nanochemistry does not break as we might imagine it from macroscopic viewpoints. Therefore, didactically spoken, the executed physical modelling and visualisation is very valuable.
«The simulation was exactly matching for the scope.» Dr. Friedemann Tonner, physicist at Fraunhofer Institute of Production technology and Automation in Stuttgart.

Further projects under Non-Disclosure Agreements

for several companies in the materials and technology research field

Currently, we work on further projects regarding specialized surfactants, lipids, structural interfaces and protective coatings.

xirrus simulation Flarm

xirrus simulates Flarm

The collision avoidance device Flarm can enhance privat air traffic security, since it warns its pilot of potentially dangerous encounters by other planes.

xirrus GmbH has investigated under contract of Flarm Technologies GmbH different scenarios to secure reachable safety investments also in future developments.
