Documentations, tutorials, demos

Three categories : user help files, tutorials and demos

User help files

The DynamiT Help File contains more than 70 pages written in the HTML format. This context help details each step from the nettings parameters input to the simulation results interpretation.

The users of the version 2.1 can now have the help files and the software interface in Spanish or in French langage.

  • Download the zip file : DynamiT FRandES.
  • Unzip it and put the 4 files in the DynamiT directory (C:\Program Files\IFREMER\DynamiT for instance).
  • Use the menu File/Preferences/Langage to select the new langage.


A series of tutorials is proposed in the following table. Self training with these documents should enable new users to learn how to use the software.
