RDEC Title


Stacked doors

The Revolving Door Energy Calculator (RDEC) program from Davis Associates, Inc., was created to make calculation of the kinetic energy of a revolving door quick, easy and accurate.   All of the required complicated equations for the various door components are contained within RDEC.   The user has only to enter the basic parameters that describe the door -- diameter, rotation rate, weights or masses of wings, etc. -- and RDEC does the rest.   Moreover, RDEC contains a host of additional features to assist in the analysis of design variations, including the ability to account for components not ordinarily considered, such as a co-rotating ceiling, showcase floors, control boxes rotating with the door, and novel objects placed within showcases or elsewhere on the door.
