  1. Dirk, You may find this online conversion tool useful: https://www.rockware.com/customer/PetraSimCSV.html It has been developed to convert TOUGHREACT v3.32 output files that are in a TecPlot format to the CSV files that are used by PetraSim for results visualization. This currently works with the flow model output, as well as the water chemistry and minerals. It is not currently set up for display of gases or vectors (or other types of output). This is something we hope to address later this year in a new version of PetraSim. Please feel free to reac
  2. You can also add an additional field to the database through the Tab Manager. In the Borehole Manager, go to View|Tab Manager. Highlight the Lithology table and then click on Edit Fields. I would recommend that you not try to adjust the order of the existing fields in the database. New fields should be displayed to the right of the Comments column. Once you've added the new field, you can access it through the Datasheet button.
  3. I am not able to look at your PowerPoint file. Please send it, along with your SIM file, to tech@rockware.com and we will take a look.
  4. Just to give a little bit more input - I would say that 3D display can handle much larger grids than 2D display without running into memory errors. I just did some testing and found on my computer that the program got pretty sluggish when displaying a grid with more than 1000x1000 grid cells. This is more cells that you would want to use when creating a stratigraphy model or a solid model (lithology, I/P/T-data), but would probably be OK for simple 3D display. That being said, I was even able to display a grid with 3000x3000 cells in 3D, but the 3D viewer did not respond quickly
  5. No, if the spatial filter is set to the project extent, I wouldn't expect it to affect the plots. If you encounter this again, it would be helpful if we could take a look at the data and project settings to see if we can determine what might be going on. Because multiple RockWorks menus can be open at once, I could imagine that it might act strange if multiple windows are open with different spatial filter settings. So, I would recommend closing them all and reopening if you need to make a change to the spatial filter settings.
  6. I can't think of any reason why this would happen. I did notice that you had a spatial filter turned on when reviewing your data last week. It is possible that this is enabled? It will affect what I-Data is plotted in logs.
  7. Your question is not silly! Unfortunately, PetraSim is not really designed to create cross-sections. If you are working with a rectangular mesh, you can show rows and columns of cells, with all other cells turned off. If you color the cells based on the layer or material type, it will create a cross-sectional view of the model. To do this, select the mesh row or column and right click to choose to Show Only Selected Objects. Please let us know if you have additional questions!
  8. RockWorks plots all boreholes as vertical in sections and projected sections. So, if you are working with angled holes, you are really limited to working with profiles for 2D diagrams. If you check on the "Use True Vertical Depth" option when creating sections and projected sections, then the boreholes will be corrected to plot accurate elevations, but they will still plot as vertical holes in the diagrams.
  9. We don't currently have a way to project a 3D DXF onto a profile or section. If you want to send us an example of the DXF file (and your RockWorks project if you are willing to share your data), we could take a look and let you know if we can think of any way to reproduce this in a format that could be projected onto a 2D diagram. You can email this to tech@rockware.com.
  10. Here is a link to the PetraSim Resources page: https://www.thunderheadeng.com/petrasim/petrasim-resources/ There are links to many Steam tables further down on the page.
  11. I would recommend just importing it using an Excel file. If you are using the Multi-table import format, the program will automatically add the new fields to the database and then import the data. If you use the Single table import format, you can use the "Add Types" button in the lower right corner of the Import window to automatically add the new data types during the import. If you would prefer to enter by hand, then you can add the new data types by clicking on the I-Data Types button displayed in the I-Data table, or by going to the I-Data menu and choosing the I-Data Types
  12. RockWorks only contains a single I-Data table, but you don't have to have the same interval for all data types. The easiest way to import data is probably through an Excel file. We support 2 Excel import formats: 1. If you import through the File|Import|Excel|Multiple Tables menu, the program will expect the following input columns: Borehole Name Type Depth 1 Depth 2 Value Here is an example of what this would look like in a spreadsheet: Bore Type Depth-1 Depth-2 Value DH-1 Benzene 0.00 0.50 0.000 DH-1 B
  13. You can import simple 3D DXF files into RockPlot3D. To do this, open a blank RockPlot3D window and go to File|Import. This tool imports DXF LINE, POLYLINE, LWPOLYLINE, 3DFACE, SOLID, and CIRCLE (filled) commands. So, if the DXF is more complicated, you may need to adjust the settings during the export, or explode the DXF in a program such as AutoCAD. If you are trying to do something with the DXF other than display it in 3D, we would really need more details to determine if this import is feasible.
  14. The "white space as zeros" option will not work with most versions of TOUGH, including those packaged with the PetraSim interface. This is because TOUGH element names are made of 3 characters and two numbers. For the number part, "04" is written as " 4" in a TOUGH and TOUGHREACT output files, so they are normally excluded from the input file created by the interface. Unless you are using a different simulator (for example iTOUGH2), you should disable this option.
  15. It is my understanding that the diffusion coefficient for all aqueous species is assumed to the be the same in TOUGHREACT. You might contact the TOUGHREACT authors at LBL to see if they have any ideas or planned developments on how to deal with this limitation.
