Software SAMG for the acceleration of groundwater simulations now available with new license model

16.05.2012
The software package SAMG was developed for highly efficient, numerical solutions of large, sparsely populated matrix problems.

Problems of this type can be found in several application domains, e.g. in simulations of oil reservoirs, automotive design and also simulations relevant for environmental analyses, such as groundwater flow. SAMG is developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing (SCAI).

SAMG is developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing (SCAI).

The MODFLOW software from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) organization simulates flows in groundwater reservoirs, to show transport and diffusion of certain materials (e.g. pollutants). The combination of SAMG and MODFLOW accelerates groundwater simulations enormously. The gain in computation time in solving large systems can be of orders of magnitude. This makes the software the first choice for companies and those seeking to optimize use of computing resources.

The SAMG-MODFLOW package now available online includes the SAMG Library (dll) customized for MODFLOW, MODFLOW 2005 linked to the SAMG Library, documentation, test models as well as an interface description to allow users to link SAMG to their MODFLOW variant.

A 30-day evaluation license for SAMG for MODFLOW is available at no cost and until June 30, 2012, there is a 30% discount on both the research and regular licenses. MODFLOW itself remains of course free of charge. Please visit the online shop of SCAI´s sales spin-off scapos AG under www.scapos.com

Im Focus: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
