PetraSim 5.0.0820 (Beta)

Posted: August 20th, 2010 in Release Notes

This is an update for the PetraSim 5 beta release.

  • Added TOUGH2-MP support. The EOS3 module is included with this release.
  • TOUGH2-MP options have been added to the Simulation Parameters dialog.
  • TOUGHREACT EXEs have been rolled back to the build deployed with PetraSim 4.2. This fixes a convergence bug caused by compiler optimizations.
  • When switching EOS modules, variable format data will be reset. State variables may still be re-interpreted to invalid values.
  • Fixed a bug that caused PetraSim to fail to import old SIM files that did not contain a mesh.
  • A warning is now shown when creating a new mesh will destroy existing cell data.
  • Improved the performance of the tree view when working with large numbers of cells.
  • The Show Vectors UI component is now properly linked to vector visibility in the 3D results.
  • Fixed a bug that caused PetraSim to be locale-sensitive when selecting the decimal character for TOUGH2 input files (e.g. sometimes use commas instead of periods).

  • Improved the performance of the input file writer. This is most noticeable when using large meshes.
  • Restored the model outline display to the 3D Results view.
  • Partial results can now be read while the simulation is running.
  • The results reader is now much more memory efficient.
  • When changing the number of z-divisions, PetraSim will now issue a warning if the mesh is out of sync.
  • The Set/Remove Top Image actions are now in the Model menu.
  • Improved the performance of cell and region coloring. This is most noticeable in complex models.
  • Limited the range of the RP parameter Sls to <= 1.
  • Injection enthalpy is no longer required to be greater than 0.0.
  • Fixed an off-by-one error in the simulation time step display.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the 3D font engine to use too much memory.
  • The PetraSim User Manual is now bundled with the software.
