Hi David, I found some strange thing when running the transport model, i.e., sometime the selected output file is empty. Don't know if it is a bug. Look at the small example below, the output fild tmp1 is empty after running in my computer. cheers, xiaomin TITLE Test SOLUTION 1-28 pH 7 charge units mol/kgw pe 4 -water 0.03375 Na 1e-3 Cl 2.9e-03 end SOLUTION 0 Inlet concentration pH 7 units mol/kgw pe 4 -water 0.03375 end TRANSPORT -cells 28 -shifts 50 -time_step 30857 #10.5d/28*86400s/d -flow_direction forward -lengths 28*5e-3 -boundary_conditions flux flux -dispersivities 28*0.012 -correct_disp true -diffusion_coefficient 0.0000 -punch_cells 28 -punch_frequency 1 -warnings false SELECTED_OUTPUT -file tmp1 -selected_out true -user_punch true -reset false PRINT -reset false -selected_output true -status true USER_Graph -start 5 pv=STEP_NO/28 145 ph=-log10(ACT("H+")) 160 PUNCH pv,ph,"1" -end END ======= At 2003-06-26, 07:17:00 you wrote: ======= >I have been working on a method for integrating the rate equations that >works better with stiff equations.
