AbstractThe National Research Council Canada Integrated Modeling (NRCIM) toolset is based in the MATLAB numerical computing environment. It links ANSYS finite element structural models with ZEMAX optical models to provide a powerful integrated opto-mechanical engineering tool. This toolset is utilized by the Thirty Meter Telescope Project to assess the telescope active optics system performance for gravity and thermal loads, as well as the opto-mechanical performance of the NFIRAOS first light adaptive optics system and the laser guide star beam transfer optics path. This paper describes the NRCIM toolset, including the interfaces to ANSYS, ZEMAX, the method of calculation of the results, and the internal data structures used. © 2011 SPIE.
