Welcome to OpenTerrace

OpenTerrace is a pure Python framework for thermal energy storage packed bed simulations. It is built from the ground up to be fast, flexible and extendable on modern Python 3.x with speed in mind.

OpenTerrace uses the finite volume method (FVM) to obtain the transient temperature response in thermal energy storage packed bed systems. The user can for both the tank and bed phase change parameters such as shape, substance type, boundary conditons and source terms to simulate a wide range of storage systems making OpenTerrace a versatile tool.
