GASCalc API

 

The GASCalc™ 5.0 API (Application Programming Interface) compliments the GASCalc software by allowing programmatic access to selected calculation routines and methods found in the software. The API allows the GASCalc routines to be embedded in third party or custom applications to create powerful solutions to serious calculation challenges.

The API is a Dynamic Link Library (DLL) containing the gas properties, measurement, pipe flow, regulator, and relief valve calculation routines found in the GASCalc software. The DLL can be linked to a User created application or interface - allowing programmatic access to the various GASCalc calculation routines. The GASCalc API is compatible with any development environment that supports the use of dynamic link library's including .NET, VB Script, VBA, and others.

Pricing & Licensing - The API is licensed and priced on per module, per server basis. Discounts are available for multiple module, multiple licenses, and complete package purchases. Click here to view pricing information. Contact us to purchase the software.

Maintenance & Updates - An annual maintenance fee equal to 15% of the original purchase price is required. Updates to the software are available at no additional charge. Technical support on the use of the software is provided by way of telephone or email communication at no additional fee.

The API is licensed on a module basis. The individual modules allow access to specific calculation methods and routines. The available modules are described in the following table:
