  2. Resolved with 3D isopach diagram tool, achieving volumes for each layer. Top grid worked perfect with this technique. File too big to show illustration Craig
  3. Hi, Recently, I used Petrasim 2018 to simulate dissolution and precipitation in sandstone under meteoric water, but it always reminds me " Singular Matrix in Chemical Solver, STOP". I tried to use PHREEQC to balance river water and sandstone as suggested, the results from PHREEQC show different chemical ions with Petrasim/toughreact (like Al3+ in PHREEQC, AlO2- in Petrasim/toughreact). Then I used part and all of PHREEQC balance results as initial water, but these two inputs both remind me same error " Singular Matrix in Chemical Solver, STOP". At this time, I did not add boundary water in this system. I feel so confused and donot know how to solve this problem. I desperately want help from Petrasim/toughreact specialists! Best regrdings! 1.sim solute.inp chemical.inp flow.inp
  4. Poly clip works for all grids except top grid? This grid extends beyond clip to project dimensions, impacts volume calcs. Tried poly clip on this grid, software kept grabbing the old file. Deleted file but software found it again. Suggestions? Never had this happen before. Thank you
  5. Hi, Alison Thanks for your replying and suggestions! I modified the RCUR and KCPL parameters and basically achieved the porosity and calcite concentration change. But, the dolomite deposition (change of abundance in volume fraction is about 0.02) still disappear at the bottom horizon. So I have some questions for you: (1) how to achieve the dolomite deposition? (2) I noticed the K25 (4.58E-19) EA(133.5) and CK1(2.2) in tough file are different with 2.95121E-08 , 52.2 and 1.0 in reference book. How could I set these parameters? (3) I set the injection rate will be decreased as time, how could I observe this change in Petrasim? Hope for your replying. Best regarding 1.sim
  6. PetraSim version 2018 includes executables for TOUGHREACT v1.2 that have been optimized to work with PetraSim. If your colleague is using a more recent version of TOUGHREACT, then this could explain the differences in results. I took a quick look at your model and the TOUGHREACT input files for the other simulation and noticed that your colleagues model contains 100 elements, while your model contains only 5. Its also possible that the difference in discretization could be causing these differences. Some other differences that I noticed: - RCOUR is set to 0.9 in your colleague's model (TOUGHREACT | Solution Parameters | Time and Convergence Tab), this will lead to smaller time steps, so you would need to increase the maximum number of times steps for your model or allows for an unlimited number of time steps. - KCPL is set to 2 in your colleague's model (TOUGHREACT | Solution Parameters | Advanced Tab) - Your colleague's model seems to be isothermal (Properties | Global Properties | EOS Tab) I would suggest that you experiment with these items more and contact tech@rockware.com if you need additional help.
  7. Recently, I try to use Petrasim to model interaction between meteoric water and carbonate rock. I got original .inp files from the author, she used toughreact to acquire results. I set the same parameters as inp files from toughR, but i got very different results (such as porosity and calcite concentrate). Then I borrowed other's Petrasim 2018 and run my sim file, I got same results as my version. So could you can help me find out the reasons that leading to very different results, even though they have same parameters? Petrasim provides so convenient interaction and visualization windows. I do not want to give up this software. Model set (EOS1): Material: 0.8 calcite + 0.2 dolomite ; Run time:2 Ma; Boundary water: Meteoric water; Original water: Formation water; Injection rate: 9.5129E-4 kg/s at begin, 0 kg/s at 2Ma Results: At the simulation ending, porosity does not increase and calcite does not decrease in Patrasim; the results in toughreact are opposite. model.rar
  8. Don, The OBJ export was really developed with Sketchfab in mind, but I would expect that it would work in some other viewers as well. I tested this with some 3D PDF at one point and found that they really only worked with much smaller files. Sketchfab seems to be able to handle pretty large and complex files that the other programs could not handle. We are open to suggestions for new export formats, so please feel free to reach out to us with suggestions or to point us in the direction of a specific viewer you would like to work with. Best Regards, Alison
  9. Hass anyone tried to use a Wavefront OBJ export from RW3D in something OTHER than SketchFab? The RW export files come in just fine into SketchFab but create errors when using on-line "plain vanilla" OBJ viewers or when trying to input into an OBJ to GLTF converter. Is there something about the OBJ file that RW3D exports that is written specifically for SketchFab import? I am on the ragged edge of my knowledge here about meshes and 3D file export but am hoping to export to viewer other than SketchFab. Ultimately would love a clean GLTF format file compatible with open-source GLTF viewers.
  10. Jasmin, Please send us your RW3D file so we can try to reproduce the problem. You can send this to tech@rockware.com. Thanks, Alison
  11. I tried to upload the voxel Model in the attachment to sketchfab. The upload doesn't work and I get the following error message: We could not read the model file, or there is no data to display. Do you know what is wrong with the file ? Thanks solidlogtest.Obj.Zip
  12. A new version of RockWorks was uploaded to the RockWare website, with new features, improvements, and bug fixes. The RockWorks Revision History includes complete lists, by date, of all changes in the program. New Features: A new feature for Playlists is that you can add notes. This helps with organization and when running the program later. The Playlist Add menu was separated into 3 main categories; Project Commands, Datasheet Commands, and Playlist Commands because the Add list was getting long. A Directional First Derivative calculator has been added to Grid|Math. The maximum number of terms that can be replaced by the Utilities / Misc / Replace Text program has been increased from 4 to 5. The Solid / Extract Grids / Solid -> Grids program now includes an option whereby the sampling thickness that is used when plotting control points can be different than the sampling thickness that is used to create the grid models. The Extract Values from Solid can now either use a single borehole as before or a list of boreholes stored in the Utilities spreadsheet. Improvements: Clicking on the scene image in RockPlot3D sets the focus so that the cursor keys can be used to rotate the scene. A right-click option was added to 'Modify Selected Text' in ReportWorks for text drawn all on the same layer. The Playlist Notes editor has been improved to look and act similar to the SQL statement editor. For the Labeled Axes the minor line can be disabled from view if it's not necessary. Exports from RockPlot3D to Google Earth now honor the 3D object's transparency settings. The Line Survey -> XYZ program converts geophysical survey data from a line-based format into an XYZ format suitable for three-dimensional display and modeling. The ModOps / Solid / Extract Grids / Solid -> Grids program now includes options for creating and displaying the grids. Redesigned the menu and increased the allowed number of targets and replacement fields to 10. This is for the Replace Text program. The lithoblending algorithm now post-processes the model to replace voxels that contain control points with the original control point g-values The Section, Profile, and Fence selection map now has scroll bars to move around when zoomed in. Bug Fixes: For P-Data, the Standardize menu saves the names of the P-Data tracks, instead of looking for the track ID. The Borehole Operations / P-Data / GT Compositing program now reads data from the specified P-Data column. We recommend that Network license users install the RockWare Network License Administrator v. 1.18. Contact support at rockware.com for a link to the latest version. To download this build, use the Help | Updates | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks. RockWorks Link, click on the free trial tab: https://www.rockware.com/product/rockworks/ where you can download the installation program and install the new build right over the top of the existing program. (DO NOT uninstall first.) Note that you will not be able to use this new build of the program if your maintenance has expired before October 2023. Contact RockWare Sales or visit our Customer Portal (https://www.rockware.com/customer/) if you would like to update your maintenance. Katy Duncan RockWare Inc
  13. An updated version of LogPlot has been loaded to the RockWare website! Improvements: Interval Text that overlaps the end of a log page no longer plots only the second line of the text on the subsequent page. The base lines for Interval Text samples will now draw on a compiled log when the check box to Frame Sample is enabled. Users now receive an error message if a Histogram, a Curve, or a Legend is missing their color table. Bug Fixes: The Interval Text base lines are drawn when selected to show in the Interval Text Options dialog; Draw Line at Column Top + Base. The default text color for Column Legends is now always black. You can refer to the complete LogPlot revision list: https://www.rockware.com/rockworks/revisions/current_logplot_revisions.htm To download this build visit the LogPlot Free Trial tab (https://www.rockware.com/product/logplot/) where you can download the installation program and install the new build. Note that the software will not be automatically licensed if your maintenance has expired before October 2023, and the software will be installed in trial mode. If you would like to renew your maintenance, contact RockWare Sales. Katy Duncan RockWare Inc
  14. Prince, Unfortunately, its very hard to determine what is causing this by looking at this log alone. Convergence problems like this are not uncommon in simulations where there are phase changes. Here are some very general suggestions: 1. You could try restarting your model by loading the SAVE file as initial conditions, and changing the RE1 (Relative Error Criterion) to a smaller value. 2. You could experiment with modifying your RP and CP curves. 3. If you are modeling as injection, you could try initializing your model with a very small amount of gas already present. If you continue to have problems, you are welcome to send your SIM file to tech@rockware.com and we'll see if we can provide additional suggestions. Thanks, Alison

  16. PROBLEM: My firm has run Rockworks successfully on Windows Server 2019 Standard for years with a physical rack server set up in our office...with terminal server/file server environment (including Rockworks) for our users. We as a company are wanting/trying to migrate to cloud terminal/file server via Microsoft Azure. Our IT firm has everything working except for some reason the Azure cloud server version is not performing quite as well as the rack server version (even though the specs of the cloud server exceed the performance specs of our rack servers). Specifically, Rockworks loses settings and files within the application during use do sometimes not reflect the current project and the application and use of the application slows and is frustrating to use. We understand that Rockworks was designed to be used on a desktop environment versus a server environment but it has worked fine on our rack server environment for years with no issue. We have tried RW on an Azure Windows 11 Desktop virtual machine and the abovementioned issues went away in part or in total. QUESTION FOR USER GROUP: However, we would like to run RW on Azure terminal server....so my question is...have any of you done this successfully and overcome the abovementioned issues we are having...and if so, any tips to offer me/us? Thanks in advance!
  17. If you are using your own executable of TOUGH v2.1, ECO2M, it will probably not output the CSV files required by PetraSim. For customers who own TOUGH V2.1 ECO2m, we typically send them an executable that is optimized to work with PetraSim. Please feel free to reach out to tech@rockware.com with details about your TOUGH v2.1 license. We should be able to confirm ownership of the simulator with LBL so we can send you an executable that is compatible with PetraSim. Best Regards, Alison
  18. Sani, It is hard to know why your simulation is not running. Feel free to send your SIM file to tech@rockware.com and we can take a look. Best Regards, Alison
  19. Good Day, I am currently working on a CO2 sequestration simulation in ToughReact using PetraSim. During this process, I encountered an issue concerning the simulation files, particularly runlog.out and flow.out. Unfortunately, there were no output files, and the error was not clearly explained. The simulation itself failed to run and displayed a window stating: "Simulation halted prematurely. See: runlog.out and flow.out." However, when attempting to access the runlog.out and flow.out files by clicking on them, nothing opens. I have included screenshots below for your reference. Your assistance in resolving this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration. Best regards, Sani
  20. Hello, I am solving the TOUGH exercise (ECO2M Example: CO2 Injection Well) on PetraSim. After successfully running Tough v2.1. I am unable to view the results (3D Results). The error tab shows that "Could not load results: Results file not found". Here is the complete scenario presented step by step. (Respective Screenshots attached with serial number): 1. New model created (TOUGH v2.1 and ECO2M) 2. Model required user-supplied simulator EXEs (A information tab opened) 3. A folder (TOUGH2_v21 created) in the relevant directory 4. ECO2M .exe file pasted in above mention the above-mentioned folder 5. Tough2 run and simulation completed 6. When I clicked on 3D results, an error showed that "Could not load results: Results file not found" 7. I checked the project folder and there are no .csv (Excel) files exist. All other EOS with Tough2.0 generating .cvs files and showing all 3D results but ECO2M with TOUGH_v2.1 not generating any .csv file in project folder and not showing 3D results. I request you, if youhave any solution to this error, please help. I would be very thankful.
  21. An updated version of LogPlot has been loaded to the RockWare website! Improvement: The program was saving duplicate times when closing which caused violation errors, this issue is resolved. You can refer to the complete LogPlot revision list: https://www.rockware.com/rockworks/revisions/current_logplot_revisions.htm To download this build visit the LogPlot Free Trial tab (https://www.rockware.com/product/logplot/) where you can download the installation program and install the new build. Note that the software will not be automatically licensed if your maintenance has expired before July 2023, and the software will be installed in trial mode. If you would like to renew your maintenance, contact RockWare Sales. Katy Duncan RockWare Inc
  22. A new version of RockWorks was uploaded to the RockWare website, with new features, improvements, and bug fixes. The RockWorks Revision History includes complete lists, by date, of all changes in the program. New Features: A program titled Grids / Layered Solid has been added to the ModOps / Solid / Create sub-menu. Unlike the Grids / Stratigraphic Solid program, this program does not require a Superface and Subface grid for each layer – just a Superface. Instead, the program starts with the lowest surface (as defined by the order in the grids listed within the datasheet) and assigns the voxels below that surface and the base of the model (as defined by the Project Dimensions) to the specified G-value. A program titled “Grids -> Layered Solid” has been added to the ModOps / Solid / Create sub-menu. A new program titled “Gridded XYZ -> Grid” has been added to the ModOps / Grid / Create menu group. This program will create a grid by reading XYZ data from an ASCII text file or the RockWorks Datasheet. The grid will be populated by simply assigning z-values to the closest grid node. The IDW Layered solid-modeling algorithm will allow the user to specify a manual layer height; in project units or in multiples of the voxel height. A new option titled “Include Grid Profile” has been added to the Graphics / Images / Vertical / Multiple sub-menu. Added a color picker (eye dropper) to RockPlot2D that allows you to select a color displayed in a RockPlot2D or RockPlot3D window. The Envelope option within the solid modeling menu now includes an option to offset the base of the model by a user-specified amount. The Datasheet / Search / Find & Replace menu now includes an option to replace just the portion of the text that matches the target. If unchecked, the entire contents of the cell will be replaced with the “Target” string. The Histogram programs now include options for plotting two vertical threshold lines at user-specified magnitudes within the diagram. Improvements: Clicking on the "How-To" button at the top of the main RockWorks menu will now display two sub-options. The "Textual Listing" option will display an expanding/collapsing textual topic menu that can be searched. Clicking on the new "Graphical Listing" will load a large array of annotated "thumbnail" images into the default web browser. Clicking on one of these image thumbnails (or the textual description below it) will display the associated video, HTML file, PDF file, or image. The color selection button used in RockWorks and LogPlot now has an additional button that puts the program in eyedropper mode. It captures all screens and allows the user to select a color they want to use. Note the red outline that indicates that you're in selection mode and press any key to cancel selection mode. Under the Add dropdown in the Playlist, an option was added to enable/disable boreholes based on a list. Raster and PDF exports of RockPlot2D files can now be created with a specific width and height. The Vertical Exaggeration is calculated based on the calculated scales. The Solid Modeling Directional Algorithm works better for groundwater plumes. Added nice features to the Solid Modeling algorithm. The Peripheral dialog now adjusts the position of the splitter bar to make sure the entire dialog is always visible. A depth filter has been added to the Spatial Filters dialog. This option is ignored by programs not using depth. The Borehole Manager / Stratigraphy / Grids -> 3D Strat. The diagram program has been moved to the ModOps / Grid menu because the input does not rely on the borehole database. When you close a playlist, the undocked windows no longer dock themselves, which speeds up the closing process. Added the color selection button, including the color picker, to the Widgits | Color Convertor | Line editor and symbol editor. When working in the Map/Model tables that have a color field you now can right-click and select a color from a dialog with a color selection button. The I-Data a P-Data Interval Labeling sub-menus within the 2D striplog designer now include vertical scrollbars if the menus are vertically squished. A Tolerance option has been added to numerous programs that display a raster image in RockPlot3D. The Tolerance factor expands the range of colors rendered transparent in an image. A tolerance of 0 only limits the transparency to the transparent color. Higher values will include more colors. The RockPlot3D toolbar now has 4 buttons that allow the user to select from fixed above viewpoints (SE, SW, NE, NW) without resetting the zoom or translation points. Bug Fixes: Anchor Text in RockPlot2D can now be resized from the handles on the left. The "Display Output in Default Viewer" setting for Rw2D Exports to Raster and PDF is now honored. Changing between OpenGL Hardware and Software settings from the RockPlot3D About dialog now works correctly. Logical legends in RockPlot3D now display the text correctly whether in ascending or descending order. Compiled logs are no longer length restrained by the Lithology Descriptions. When working in RockPlot2D and using Text (BlockText) on your display, the 'handles' available on each corner will allow resizing of the text box. This will keep the spacing and paragraph settings. Use the cursor to move the text to prevent overlaying other details. The Color Names system table works better with adding systems, assigning names, changing names, and filtering them. A new system is added by adding a color entry (or changing one) with a different number in the Color System field. For instance using the number '3', as the first 2 numbers are the default system and the Munsell colors system. Automatically cropping the full project's image down to match a subsite no longer rotates the cropped image. Pattern Assistant for Litho, Strat, Aquifer, and Well Construction types - The 'Add' button now works as expected for adding Keywords and Patterns. Undocked windows in the Playlist can now be closed without redocking them. We recommend that Network license users install the RockWare Network License Administrator v. 1.18.

  23. We try to shoot for a new release of RockWorks every month and it currently looks like we are on track for the end of this month, but at the latest it would be a release in September if something else comes up during our testing.
  24. Paul, Excellent. Thanks for the response. Do you have a ballpark estimate for when that next release will be? 2 months, 2 years, or 2 decades?
  25. In the next release of RockWorks we have added an additional feature that while creating your subsite you can refer to the project photo and RockWorks will automatically crop the project photo to your updated subsite grid & model dimensions.
