What is Sage?

Engineers and designers use Sage software to model and optimize stirling cycle engines and coolers, pulse-tube cryocoolers, and other types of cryocoolers in industries and universities throughout the world.

With Sage you can build machine simulation models, specify component dimensions and predict machine performance — all within a graphical user interface or accessed via dynamic link library (dll).

Why Sage Is Unique

Sage does not compete with general purpose CFD software (computational fluid dynamics) but rather encapsulates gas flow, heat transfer and other modeling details within a number of specialized model components which may be freely inter-connected to form complete models of complicated systems.
