catoolRT includes industry leading capabilities for analysing measured cylinder presssure. These allow the user to understand what is occuring inside the combustion chamber of the engine. This understanding can be used in research, engine design and development and powertrain control system calibration.

Some of the advanced analysis includes:

- Determination of maximum cylinder pressure and location
- Calculation of burn angles and rate
- Estimation of trapped charge
- Calculation of indicated torque, power and Mean Effective Pressure
- Comprehensive analysis of knock for onset and intensity
- Heat release analysis
