- Comparing Time Varying Data in GoldSim and Spreadsheets: This article first describes the differences between dynamic simulation tools (i.e., GoldSim) and spreadsheets. Following this introduction, it describes some problems people commonly encounter when comparing GoldSim results to spreadsheet results.
- Simple Mixing Chemistry Equilibria: One of most common application of geochemical models is prediction of the effects of mixing solutions of different chemical compositions. This model is an example of how to incorporate PHREEQC geochemical calculations into a GoldSim model through the use of a "Lookup Table" element.
- Memory Usage in GoldSim
How GoldSim Works: My model is large and uses too much memory. How can I reduce the memory size of my model?
- Increase the Number of Realizations to Process Per Slave Transaction for DP Run
Modeling Tips and Tricks: I am running a Monte Carlo simulation over network using Distributed Processing Module. Since I have access to a few muti-core machines, I have tried using a large number of slaves but I did not observe much reduction in the simulation run time. Is there another way to reduce the run time?
- Adding a Database Source on a 64-bit System
Building and Running Models: I attempted to add a database source using the ODBC Data Source Administrator tool on a 64-bit system, but I was presented with an error message saying that ODBC driver could not be found.
