Help System   Calculation

This screen initiates the actual solving engine. The output window is blank before the solver starts. After it finishes and standard .out file from the OBODM engine will be shown in the text window. Also, view buttons will be active to see other output file types, if available.

Currently, the solution is calculated using the same engine as the original OBODM ver. 1.3. Since it was written in FORTRAN, the current user interface passes the input file to the server (web and tablet based version) or to the local computer (desktop version) to perform the calculations. Thus the user interface and the calculation engine are two different programs.

In the future, new models and calculation engines may be available, and there will be a choice of which model simulation is used.
