Creative Systems Releases GHSCOM

Friday, January 10, 2003
Creative Systems, Inc., makers of GHS (General HydroStatics) ship stability software, has released GHSCOM, a software interface that allows GHS to be run from within common application programs such as Microsoft Office and AutoCAD. GHS users can now write Visual Basic functions in Excel, and with very little effort have a spreadsheet where cell values are calculated by GHS. GHSCOM provides access to the GHS main calculating engine through Microsoft COM technologies. This allows GHS to be tightly integrated into other programs. Any application written in a language that supports the COM calling convention can link to GHS through the GHSCOM module. Such languages are, C/C++ C# Delphi Java (COM Bridge) Visual Basic Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) VB Script This creates an opportunity for software developers to make use of the GHS calculating engine within programs where hydrostatic properties of floating bodies or vessels containing liquids are dealt with in the application. In addition to properties such as volume, center of volume, surface area, waterplane and lateral plane, GHS provides a host of powerful functions related to stability and strength characteristics, including ground reactions and multiple-body interactions.
