The Linux distribution package containing the executable and the Fortran source files for the HST3D simulator and the BCFLOW program with the example data files including selected output files can be obtained from the HST3D Download: list.
Download the latest distribution package.
Note: If you are using Mozilla Firefox as your Internet browser, right click on the file that you are downloading. Choose Save Link As ... to download the file.
The installation of the HST3D software normally only involves uncompressing and unpacking the distribution.
First create and change to the directory chosen for installing HST3D.
The minimum disc space required
to install HST3D and BCFLOW is 13 MB.
Note that the distribution package will unpack
into a top level directory named hst3d-v.r.
Several subdirectories will be created.
This download is in compressed tar format.
To unpack, use a command like:
gunzip hst3d-v.r.p.tar.gz | tar -xvf - or
tar -xzf hst3d-v.r.p.tar.gz
After the installation process has finished, the HST3D simulator can be tested using the examples located in the hst3d-v.r/hst/examples subdirectory. Each example with input data and selected output files is located in its own subdirectory. The BCFLOW program can be tested using the example located in the bcflow/examples/Ex.huyakorn subdirectory. Note that the executable program files are located two directory levels above the example file locations.
To test the HST3D simulator:
To test the BCFLOW program:
This section describes how to build and install the HST3D and BCFLOW executable files.
Building the executable normally follows making changes to the source code.
Prerequisite for building is a Fortran-90 compiler.
About 3.6 MB of executable files and 2.5 MB of object and module files will be created.
Please see the README and INSTALL files in the distribution package for
the most up-to-date information and instructions.
To build HST3D and BCFLOW from source code:
Remove the entire software installation with the following steps:
