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: 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: Construction
IA-Quest provides a database of materials and their measured emissions allowing materials to be selected based on low emissions. The tool also predicts the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from building materials and furnishings.
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: 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: 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: Digital Technologies
ExaCTDemo is an information extraction system to find key information from scientific clinical trial publications and clinical trial registries.
Research Centre: Construction
This tool calculates structural and non-structural component scores to assess the seismic risk of existing buildings.
Research Centre: Construction
As part of the Wind-RCI family of online tools for the roofing community, this calculator determines the resistance of the tested low-slope membrane roofing specimens in accordance with the CSA Group’s standard CSA A123.21, "Standard test method for the dynamic wind uplift resistance of membrane-roofing systems"
Research Centre: Construction
Climate-RCI is a web application tool composed of 2 parts. The first part determines the climate severity and climatic loads for current and future projections for cities across Canada, while the second part determines the roof’s performance requirement.
