This example gives a simple procedure to test whether MELTS is installed correctly on your workstation. It also serves to show how to read in an existing input file and run a simple calculation.
In the dialog file list, find the file morb.melts that you down-loaded along with the MELTS executable and double-click on the file name or highlight the file name and single click on the OK button. It may be necessary to change the default directory of the file list by modifying the file filter string (for hints on doing this see the complete description of the open... dialog).
The contents of morb.melts are read into the program by the above action. Four things have been accomplished:
In other examples the user is shown the sequence of steps to do each of these tasks manually.
The model may be halted at any time by invoking the Execute/Halt entry of the Commands menu. The user may change bulk composition or model constraints and restart the calculation using the same menu entry.
A manual page describes many common numerical problems that may occur when the program is running.
