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
Best way to begin is the run the nimrod GUI, which has built into it the GUI for the preprocessor nimset
The nimset GUI allows you to load a nimrod regession test case as template for your run.
To do this and execute nimrod you need to setup the server and installation directory on the server.
The Store/Restore Tab allows you to move results between the ‘active run’ (everything under FILES) and the STORED_RUNS directory.
