This release includes a new Iphreeqc reaction interface to combine the individual features of both tools to simulate thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical coupled processes with simultaneous consideration of aqueous geochemical reactions (sources only, not included in our pre-builds). Additional changes improve and extend some geometric methods like e.g. a function that closes a open-polyline if it is used to define a single surface. The bugfixing and minor extensions focus this time at the parameter transfer between geometry, mesh, boundary conditions, and source terms. For more details please have a look at the complete release notes of V5.5.7.
OpenGeoSys has been successfully applied to simulate high-temperature thermochemical heat storage devices with heterogeneous properties. The three-dimensional analyses reveal complex reaction patterns that cause high gradients in all relevant thermophysical field variables. OGS can be used to evaluate, e.g., the heat extraction behaviour under non-ideal flow conditions as well as for the definition of criteria allowing the recognition of unwanted physical changes inside thermochemical reactors during operation.
A first prototype of the 6th version of OpenGeoSys is off the ground. After single and coupled FORTRAN modules in ROCKFLOW 1+2, the C version 3 with dynamic data structures, the object-oriented C++ parallelized version 4, completed with data integration and some visualization tools by version 5; ogs6 is aimed at performing on supercomputing platforms and providing complete workflows for solving of coupled multi-field problems in real world applications. The major paradigms of ogs6 are being developer-friendly, performing, and user-friendly. Interested? Then have a look here:
