GOLEM is a numerical simulator for modelling coupled Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical processes in faulted geothermal reservoirs. The simulator is developed by Antoine Jacquey and Mauro Cacace at the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences from the section Basin Modelling.
GOLEM is a MOOSE-based application. Visit the MOOSE framework page for more information.
GOLEM is distributed under the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE v3.
The following system requirements are from the MOOSE framework (see Getting Started for more information):
To install GOLEM, you need first to have a working and up-to-date installation of the MOOSE framework.
To do so, please visit the Getting Started page of the MOOSE framework and follow the instructions. If you encounter difficulties at this step, you can ask for help on the MOOSE-users Google group.
cd ~/projects git clone https://github.com/ajacquey/Golem.git cd ~/projects/golem git checkout master
Note: the "master" branch of GOLEM is the "stable" branch which is updated only if all tests are passing.
You can compile GOLEM by following these instructions:
cd ~/projects/golem make -j4
To make sure that everything was installed properly, you can run the tests suite of GOLEM:
cd ~/projects/golem ./run_tests -j2
If all the tests passed, then your installation is working properly. You can now use the GOLEM simulator!
To run GOLEM from the command line with multiple processors, use the following command:
mpiexec -n <nprocs> ~/projects/golem/golem-opt -i <input-file>
<nprocs> is the number of processors you want to use and
<input-file> is the path to your input file (extension
Information about the structure of the GOLEM input files can be found in the documentation (link to follow).
