Re: Heat solve with phase change - additive enthalpy and capacity?

OK, thanks for the clarification. At least I know I didn’t screw up all of the other simulations. Just to clarify, if I had some reason to want to separately prescribe heat capacity and enthalpy to capture phase change, enthalpy would just be the excess energy profile In the melting zone above that ...

Heat solve with phase change - additive enthalpy and capacity?

I for the first time took note of a statement in the Heat Equation docs stating: "Note that for the current implementation of the heat equation heat capacity and enthalpy are additive. So if heat capacity is present in the command file it should not be incorporated to enthalpy as an integral." I hav...

Re: Solid-liquid phase change

In previous discussion the transient phase change solver required the inclusion of both Enthalpy and Effective Heat Capacity do to an issue getting transient enthalpy in the first time step. See discussion here: http://www.elmerfem.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2345 I have been doing this exclusivel...

Re: Instructions for sending a bug report

Is the preferred bug reporting method a post in this forum or an email to elmeradm@csc.fi ?

Re: Windows update is not nightly

That came up earlier in the year. It seems the build system is not producing automatic builds anymore.

Re: SaveLine, first two points are always in reverse order?

what do you mean by serial cases? do you mean cases where the saveline moves along a continuous set of nodes in index order? the answer is 'sometimes'? i have 'numbering horizontal' on in my grd file. here's a case where I'm grabbing the topmost set of nodes (on boundary 1) from left to right, and i...

SaveLine, first two points are always in reverse order?

Whenever calling the SaveLine using polyline coordinates, i noticed that the first two points in the output are always in reverse order. example, calling the solver as: Solver 2 Equation = String "SaveLine" Exec Solver = String "After Simulation" Procedure = File "SaveData" "SaveLine" Filename = Fil...

Re: Documentation source on github?

I know how to find the documentation, and I know where the github is, but it didn't see any documentation source there. Maybe I missed it?

Documentation source on github?

wondering if the documentation source is hosted somewhere on GitHub or similar with the program source or if it's just maintained offline and periodically updated/uploaded?
