Tag DuMuX 2.10.0
  • IMPORTANT NOTES:

    • DuMuX 2.10 is expected to run based on Dune 2.4.1, 2.5 and the Dune master. We will try to keep the compatibility with the Dune master as long as it is technically feasible and our resources allow it. If you want to use Dumux multidomain models, you have to stick with the Dune 2.4 core and specific versions of other modules, see test/multidomain/README for details.

    • DuMuX 2.10 requires at least GCC 4.9 or Clang 3.5 in their C++-14 mode.

    • For employing corner-point grids by means of opm-grid (former dune-cornerpoint), the OPM release 2016.04 has to be used.

  • IMPROVEMENTS and ENHANCEMENTS:

    • Two new fully-implicit models have been added: ThreePWaterOil and TwoPOneC. The first one admits two components water and oil that may be present in two liquid and one gaseous phase, see test_box3pwateroil in test/porousmediumflow/3pwateroil/implicit for details. The second one is dedicated to one generic component that may be present in liquid and gaseous state, see test_boxsteaminjection in test/porousmediumflow/2p1c/implicit for an example.

    • Numbering of the VTK files starts with 0 now.

    • Using the geostatistical tool gstat for generating random fields has been facilitated. See test_cc1pwithgstat in test/porousmediumflow/1p/implicit. This tool can be installed using the bin/installexternal.sh script. If cmake does not find gstat, one has to specify the GSTAT_ROOT variable, see the standard optim.opts or debug.opts.

    • The multidomain models should now run with all compilers without segfaults, both with optimization and debug options.

    • Computation for two-dimensional fracture networks in three-dimensional space has been fixed and is tested now in test/porousmediumflow/2p/implicit/test_fracture_box2p.

    • The bin folder containing various helper scripts has been restructured. For example, the scripts fuzzycompare.py and runtest.py are now contained in the subfolder testing.

    • Two new scripts extractlinedata.py and extractpointdataovertime.py have been added to bin/postprocessing. They realize what their names suggest.

    • The computation of the tortuosity tau with the Millington-Quirk model has been optimized. Tests show a speedup of up to 5% for a 2p2c simulation.

    • The fully-implicit box scheme now fully supports prism-shaped elements.

    • Convenience functions for reading values from a file to a container and for writing values to a file from a container have been added, see test_container_io in test/io/container.

  • IMMEDIATE INTERFACE CHANGES not allowing/requiring a deprecation period:

    • The problem class interface needs to provide the method maxTimeStepSize(). This is important if you implement problem classes not deriving from the base problem classes in Dumux (ImplicitProblem, OneModelProblem, ImpetProblem, and MultidomainProblem).
    • All name-related methods that previously returned / received const char* do now use the type-safe alternative std::string. An example is FluidSystem::componentName(). If you need a const char* for special operation use the string member c_str().
  • Deprecated PROPERTY and PARAMETER NAMES, to be removed after 2.10: BEWARE: The compiler will not print any warning if a deprecated property or parameter name is used. If possible, a run-time warning will appear in the summary lines after the corresponding run.

    • The pure run-time parameter tau has been renamed to the property and run-time parameter TauTortuosity. For the models 1p2c, 2p2c, 3p3c it got the default value 0.5.
  • Deprecated CLASSES/FILES, to be removed after 2.10:

    • The class DiffusivityConstantTau<TypeTag, Scalar> was renamed to DiffusivityConstant<TypeTag> and is located in a according new header. The old class, its header and the property tau are deprecated.

    • PointSourceHelper<TypeTag> has been deprecated. Use BoundingBoxTreePointSourceHelper<TypeTag> instead.

    • The classes Dumux::Liquid/GasPhase<Scalar, Component> have been moved to the namespace Dumux::FluidSystems.

  • Deprecated MEMBER FUNCTIONS, to be removed after 2.10:

    • checkEffectiveSaturation of the classes PlotMaterialLaw<TypeTag> in dumux/io.

    • concentrationGrad of the class TwoPNCFluxVariables<TypeTag>. Use moleFractionGrad instead, with the obviously different physical meaning.

  • DELETED classes/files, property names, constants/enums, member functions, which have been deprecated in DuMuX 2.9:

    • Everything listed as deprecated below has been removed.
