This page allows you to see some case studies that have been performed by various users.

Browse through the links below and you will see some pictures that give you an idea of each case. This will be a good indication of the different capabilities of the software. When they are given, you can also use the input files as a starting point to make your own files. See how different authors have solved different problems.

When the input files, output files or text reports are given, they are given "as is", which means that no liability of any sort is accepted by the authors for your utilisation of their file.

Simple examples

You can open them to have a look in the input and output files, or to visualise the results with the graphic postprocessor Diamond
