Highlights

  • We are happy to announce that the TH2M-process is now feature complete and has evaporation and dissolution implemented.

    The TH2M process describes a two-phase, two-component approach, which is fully coupled with thermodynamic and geomechanical processes. Due to the complex process couplings, many different processes (e.g. in repository systems) can be investigated numerically, including media dry-out and resaturation, consolidation, stress- or deformation-dependent permeabilities, thermal expansion and heat-induced stresses, gas transport processes in fully or partially saturated media and others.

    The two-component approach also enables the description of phase transition processes (evaporation, solution) under an equilibrium condition. The TH2M model is verified and validated on a benchmark suite which provides a hierarchical classification of different coupling combinations of the individual processes.

  • Python bindings were extended in two ways: OGS got python wheels and can now be installed with pip, and has got a basic python interface to run a simulation from within python.

  • For developers the biggest improvement is the inclusion of the Eric Niebler’s ranges library. Already used in few places in OGS it greatly improves code readability through easier composition.

Process’ changes

  • !4087 Adding forward differences numerical Jacobian computation. It is less expensive then central differences, but not necessarily slower overall, and sometimes even faster.
  • !4161 Refactoring of domain deactivation.
  • !4204 Removes the IntegrationMethod template parameter from local assemblers that use Taylor-Hood elements.
  • !4217 Removes the IntegrationMethod template parameter from the remaining local assemblers (processes, STs, BCs).
  • !4233 Parameter type Function can be used for MPL property and constituitive relation parameters in THM, TRM and TR.
  • !4210 [PL/TH2M] Add/correct residuum output.
  • !4247 MPL: Reimplement VariableArray as own class. Less memory and a little faster. Easier usage.

TH2M

The TH2M process describes a two-phase, two-component approach, which is fully coupled with thermodynamic and geomechanical processes. Due to the complex process couplings, many different processes (e.g. in repository systems) can be investigated numerically, including media dry-out and resaturation, consolidation, stress- or deformation-dependent permeabilities, thermal expansion and heat-induced stresses, gas transport processes in fully or partially saturated media and others. The two-component approach also enables the description of phase transition processes (evaporation, solution) under an equilibrium condition. To validate the TH2M model, a benchmark suite was created that provides a hierarchical classification of different coupling combinations of the individual processes. This proves the validity and correct implementation of all terms of the model equations.

OpenGeoSys-5

As OGS-6 is a re-implementation of OGS-5 with new concepts and methodologies there will probably never be complete feature parity. We provide binaries of OpenGeoSys-5 ready for you to use. Support is limited but you may ask questions or report bugs via our discussion forum mailing list.
