AMBER 生物圈評估軟體


AMBER is a flexible mathematical modelling software tool that allows users to build their own dynamic compartment models to simulate the migration, degradation and fate of contaminants in environmental and engineered systems. AMBER allows the user to assess routine, accidental and long-term contaminant release.

Quintessa is pleased to announce the release of the latest version in December 2015. AMBER 6.0 represents a major upgrade and includes significant new features and capabilities, including:
  • spatial awareness and 3D visualisation of models, which is an unrivalled capability in this calibre of contaminant transport software;
  • a significant update to the user interface to make greater use of split-screens and tabs, increasing the flexibility for users when developing models; and
  • cross-platform support, for running on Windows and Linux operating systems.
These build on the existing key features of AMBER:
  • text-based case files for Quality Assurance and collaborative model development;
  • fast and accurate Laplace-transform solver & adaptive time-stepping solvers;
  • unconstrained layout of compartments and transfers in a model window;
  • input data and expressions managed via flexible parameter lists;
  • time-varying parameters and non-linear processes;
  • data import/export and batch mode options for integration with other software tools;
  • copying and pasting of parameters and structures between models;
  • parameter checking and 'units awareness' to avoid inconsistencies;
  • deterministic, partial and full probabilistic capabilities;
  • Monte Carlo or Latin Hypercube sampling options with correlations;
  • any number of contaminants, compartments and transfers can be represented;
  • full support for contaminant degradation, decay and in-growth;
  • user-defined complex algorithms and data sets for system definition and endpoints;
  • built-in graphing as well as Excel export capabilities;
  • tutorials and technical supporting documentation;
  • training courses and workshops tailored to client requirements;
  • user support, dialogue and consulting services; and
  • continuous development with regular, backwardly-compatible releases.
