Running a Simulation

To simulate the spatial model, click on the “Simulate” tab, specify the simulation time and desired interval between images, then click “Simulate”.

The default simulation type is DUNE, which is a high-quality FEM solver. An alternative type is Pixel, which provides fast (but less reliable) results. The simulation type can be chosen by clicking on Tools->Set simulation type.

The resulting average species concentrations are plotted as a function of time. A snapshot of the spatial distribution is shown on the left, and the slider below the plot can be used to change the time that is being displayed. A 1d slice of the image as a function of time can also be generated.
