New release of the mfixgui (0.1)

Dear MFiX user,

We are pleased to announce a new release of the mfixgui (0.1). The mfixgui has been designed to act as a front end tool that allows users to quickly set-up MFiX computational fluid dynamic models, run the developed models, and provide post-processing tools with the goal of making MFiX easy to use. The mfixgui is not required to run MFiX and does not need a valid MFiX source code to function. However, having a valid MFiX source code allows the gui to extract keyword documentation for error checking and documentation, compile mfix, and run models.

Notable new features include (For full release notes, please see the documentation):

  • Video Tutorials
  • Solver keywords are now editable through the GUI
  • Default values are populated.
  • Tools for selecting STL facets for boundary conditions
  • MFiX can be downloaded through the gui
  • As well as numerous bug fixes.

The GUI can be downloaded here as the source code or a system specific binary.

Please provide feedback about the design, layout, methodology, features, and bugs. Please send any gui related questions and suggestions to the mailing list.
