ECHOMETER QROD

QRod is the most widely used, free program for the design and prediction of the performance of Sucker Rod Beam Pumping Installations. Echometer has released an updated version QRod that allows the displays of both the input and output in either English or Spanish. The QRod version for the PC can be used free of charge. The software can be downloaded for installation and use on any numbers of PCs. QRod’s objective is to help the beam pumping system designer implement state of the art design technology without getting buried with details. The program uses a wave equation solution to accurately predict the surface dynamometer loads, gearbox torque and pump capacity, with a minimum amount of input. The effect of changing a parameter such as tubing anchor, stroke length, stroke rate, and pump diameter can be immediately seen in the dynamically updated plots.

SEDLOG

Sedlog is known to be the best freeware used specifically for sedimentary lithological log development. The app provides standard sedimentological data, provides an intuitive graphical user interface, making it very easy for geologist of all levels to easily handle it. The graphic sediment logs generated by SedLog can be exported as PDF, SVG, or JPEG for use by other drawing applications or for publications. Log data can be imported and exported in CSV format. Graphic logs can also be printed to any paper size the user wants. It should be noted that experienced geologist such as Garry Nichols participated in the development of the app. For proper functioning of the software on windows PC, javascript installation is required and should be done first before installing sedlog.

STEREONET

STEREONET: Plotting of structural data.

E-FOTO:

This is a software with which you can create very good topographic three dimensional mapping projects by using aerial photogrammetric images obtained through different types of camera. The software has photogrammetric capabilities and appears to be a low cost solution compared to other systems of the same category. For updates, go to: (http://www.efoto.eng.uerj.br/)
