New input syntax

Post by Bernd » Tue Jan 07, 2020 9:43 pm

Dear all,

One of the most obvious changes in MICRESS Version 7.0 is the new input syntax. Apart from some technical necessities, the main reason for these changes was the improved consistency and intuitiveness, which we hope will make your working with MICRESS easier.
One of the main drivers for these changes, which we already had planned for a long time, were that reading the .GES5-files right at the beginning delivers information (like phase names etc.) which are required at later places. Furthermore, data for phase properties and interface properties are grouped together, so that modifications of the input file do not require changes in so many places as before. Finally, model parameters and numerical parameters are now distinguished systematically and grouped accordingly for the different solvers.
We hope that you get acquainted to the new structure rapidly and enjoy it. DP_MICRESS helps you to convert old input files of Version 6.4 automatically to Version 7.0 (other versions can also be converted with some manual help). If you encounter any problems with the new syntax please don't hesitate to ask us for help!

Best wishes
Bernd
