Software and applications

The NRC develops software tools and applications to help researchers, industry and the general public accomplish various complex tasks. See the list below to learn about and get access to the tools.

Research Centre: Metrology
The NRC's electron gamma shower (EGS) software is a general-purpose software toolkit that can be applied to build Monte Carlo simulations of coupled electron-photon transport, for particle energies ranging from 1 keV to 10 GeV.
Research Centre: Advanced Electronics and Photonics
BEAMnrc is now part of EGSnrc.
Research Centre: Construction
The soundPATHS web application is a prediction tool for the calculation of direct and flanking sound transmission between adjacent rooms using the calculation procedure outlined in the 2015 edition of the National Building Code of Canada.
Research Centre: Construction
IBANA-Calc calculates the effect of sound insulation against aircraft noise, providing users with indoor noise levels for different outdoor aircraft noises and building constructions.
Blue Kenue Visualization
Research Centre: Ocean, Coastal and River Engineering
Blue Kenue™ is an advanced data preparation, analysis, and visualization tool for hydraulic modellers. It provides a state-of-the-art interface, integrating geospatial data with model input and results data.
Research Centre: Ocean, Coastal and River Engineering
Green Kenue™ is an advanced data preparation, analysis, and visualization tool for hydrologic modelers to assist them with surface hydrological modelling, forecasting and event simulation.
Research Centre: Aerospace
This interactive map provides a graphical way for drone / unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) pilots to select areas in which to fly.
Research Centre: Digital Technologies
The NRC Sentiment and Emotion Lexicons is a collection of seven lexicons, including the widely used Word-Emotion Association Lexicon.
Research Centre: Digital Technologies
ExaCTDemo is an information extraction system to find key information from scientific clinical trial publications and clinical trial registries.
