What Is New in Kinetics Neo?

Release History

Version 2.5.0 (February 24, 2021)

  • Improved:  The calculationof the first and the last points for Friedman Method and for Numeric method.
  • Improved: Two digits after comma are shown for the heating rate in dialog Predictions-Multiple Step.
  • Kinetics Neo project file has a new structure and has file extension KINX2. The KINX files can also be opened.
  • Fixed: Y-Axis Title is changed for KAS and ASTM E2890 from "LOG" to "LN". Calculations were correct and stay unchanged.
  • Fixed: import from project of Thermokinetics 3.1 where measured files have Japanees names.
  • Fixed: In the climatic predictions data the Oslo is located in the correct country. 
  • Other small improvements and bug fixes.

Version 2.4.6 (January 30, 2020)

Build 2.4.20030.8

  • Improved: geographic map data provider which has unexpectable stopped to provide map data is replaced by Microsoft Bing Maps in climatic predictions (Predictions based on climate temperature profile).
  • Improved: If the computer is offline then the offline geographic data will be used.
  • Added: It is possible to switch between online and offline maps modes in the Settings.
  • Improved: in Conversion Values Optimization when the X axis is time and Y axis is Conversion the X axis scaling was always minutes. Now the scaling is automatically recalculated to hours/days/weeks/months depending of the time value and Settings.
  • Other small improvements and bug fixes.

Version 2.4.4 (October 30, 2019)

Build 2.4.19303.6

  • AddedPredictions based on climate temperature profile (“Climatic Predictions”). Now it is possible to predict the reaction progress for the real atmospheric temperatures for a selected point on the Earth, from the selected day of the year, for the selected durations, which is usually several months or years. 
  • Added: Six new Adjusting Arrows for model-based analysis. Now it is much easier to adjust the positions of the simulated curves manually before optimization. It will improve the optimization results because they depend on the initial values of parameters.
  • Added: Undo for all user's actions in model-based analysis. Now it is possible revert the changes after model recalculation or optimization if the results are not good.
  • AddedAuto Zoom for charts with two Y axes, for example, Signal and Temperature. Now two charts on one plot can be auto-arranged one above the another.
  • Added: Font size for the chart legend can be set independent of the other chart parameters.
  • Added: Tooltip on chart data points ("markers").
  • Added: Adding measurement files by drag-and-drop from Windows Explorer directly into the Kinetics Neo.
  • Improved: Parameter title is changed from AutocatOrder to Log(AutocatPreExp) for autocatalitic reactions C1,Cn.Cmn,KS. Corresponding titles in equations are corrected too. Calculations are not changed.
  • Improved: R² statistics is now shown with 5 digits after comma. Previously it was 4 digits.
  • Fixed: Heating-Cooling baseline for Dilatometer.
  • Fixed: The sum of contributions is always equal to 1 (one).
  • Fixed: When the source file to be imported doesn't contain any data for Kinetics Neo then it will not be imported. Previously the file without name and data was imported.
  • Fixed: NaN for A2 reaction type if educt=0.
  • Fixed: Chart data export now correctly exports simulated conversion rate values.
  • Fixed: Incorrect label "Correlation R" is changed to "R²" in Model Based and Model Free Properties panels.
  • Other small improvements and bug fixes.

Version 2.1.2 (December 10, 2018)

Build 2.1.18344.2

Version 2.0.1 (September 6, 2018)

Build 2.0.18249.2

  • Added: new project type Rheometry, signal units are dN*m. Now it is possible to analyze, simulate, optimize and predict the rheometry type of data.
  • Added: new project type Viscosity, signal units are Log(Pa*s). Now it is possible to analyze, simulate, optimize and predict the viscosity type of data.
  • Added: new model-free analysis method Dynamic Arrhenius for failure temperature during heating like Oxidation Onset Temperature (OOT).
  • Added: new model-free analysis method Isothermal Arrhenius (ASTM E2070, method D) for time-to-event values like Oxidation-Induction Time (OIT).
  • Added: new model-free analysis method ASTM E2070 (method A) for isothermal data like isothermal crystallization.
  • Added: new prediction Isothermal Lifetime for all reaction types.
  • Added: new optimization type Conversion Values. It can be used for user-defined function of degree of conversion vs time.
  • Added: possibility to export/import of temperature program to/from the text file for Multiple Step predictions.
  • Added: possibility to copy model image to clipboard for model-based method.
  • Added: possibility to export/import of model to/from the binary file for model-based method. 
  • Added: new baseline Right Tangential DEA for dynamic measurements.
  • Added: two new pre-installed training samples: Rheometry_Natural_Rubber and Viscosity_Curing.
  • Improved: Doyle approximation for calculation of activation energy by Ozawa-Flynn-Wall (OFW) method.
  • Improved: calculation of pre-exponential factor by Kissinger-Akahira-Sunose (KAS) method.
  • Improved: calculation of Durbin-Watson factor for high degree of freedom.
  • Other small improvements and bug fixes.
