NIMROD solves the extended magnetohydrodynamic equations using:
Spectral finite element discretization in two dimensions
Finite Fourier series in the third dimension
Semi-implicit and implicit temporal discretization for the range of temporal scales found in fusion experiments
Simulation particles for kinetic effects from a minority species of energetic ions
Integro-differential methods for kinetic effects from free-streaming
This NIMROD module is used to:
Load input files defined by user or from existing NIMROD regression cases
Modify input files
Preprocess, plot, and sanity-check input files
Run NIMROD serially, in parallel, or as a batch job
Retrieve outputs (usually excluding dump files)
Store/Restore simulations on HPC systems
Compare different simulations
When you launch the main GUI, you will first see the ‘setup’ GUI that will ask you to set up your first simulation.
Once you click Setup Nimrod, you will see the main NIMROD GUI. Save your project–the project name is used in the directory paths.
The ANALYSIS subtree contains separate GUI for doing additional analysis on runs that you have completed.
