10.20Runfile history


10.20.1Upcoming additional runfile options

We are implementing additional runfile-options scheduled for a next iMOD release;
in Section 10.2 to Section 10.18 these additional options are denoted as
"This runfile-option is scheduled for a next iMOD release".


10.20.2Updating from iMOD 4.2.1 to iMOD 4.3

Specifying KVA is now obligatory when defining a model using TOP, BOT and KHV. In all other cases you can re-use your existing iMOD 4.2.1-runfile in iMOD 4.3 without any changes.


10.20.3Updating from iMOD 4.2 to iMOD 4.2.1

You can re-use your existing iMOD 4.2-runfile in iMOD 4.2.1 without any changes.


10.20.4Updating from iMOD 4.1.1 to iMOD 4.2

You can re-use your existing iMOD 4.1.1-runfile in iMOD 4.2 without any changes.


10.20.5Updating from iMOD 4.1 to iMOD 4.1.1

You can re-use your existing iMOD 4.1-runfile in iMOD 4.1.1 without any changes.


10.20.6Updating from iMOD 4.0 to iMOD 4.1

You can re-use your existing iMOD 4.0-runfile in iMOD 4.1 without any changes, except for the following issues:

Note: The processing of FCT and IMP has been corrected, possibly yielding different results.

Note: The use of the SFR-, LAK-, UZF- and MNW-packages in a runfile is not supported; these packages have to be configured in a so-called project (*.PRJ) file.


10.20.7Updating from iMOD 3.6 to iMOD 4.0

You can re-use your existing iMOD 3.6-runfile in iMOD 4.0 without any changes using the default PCG solver. iMOD 4.0 contains the Parallel Krylov Solver package too, however, it is recommended always trying to run your model with the default PCG solver first.
To run your model using the PKS-package - after installing the third party MPI-software (see iMOD installation instructions, Section 2.3) - change the Solver Settings in Data Set 5 accordingly; see Section 10.6 for details. An example of a runfile including PKS-solver settings is given in the figure below.

To define or change the PKS-solver settings via the iMOD-GUI see section Section 7.9. For instructions on how to run a model including the PKS-package, see Section 10.21.


10.20.8Updating from iMOD 3.4 to iMOD 3.6

You can re-use your existing iMOD 3.4-runfile in iMOD 3.6 without any changes.

Note: The use of the SFR-, LAK-, UZF- and MNW-packages in a runfile is not supported; these packages have to be configured in a so-called project (*.PRJ) file.


10.20.9Updating from iMOD 3.3 to iMOD 3.4

You can re-use your existing iMOD 3.3-runfile in iMOD 3.4 without any changes.


10.20.10Updating from iMOD 3.2.1 to iMOD 3.3

You can re-use your existing iMOD 3.2.1-runfile in iMOD 3.3 without any changes.


10.20.11Updating from iMOD 3.2 to iMOD 3.2.1

The only difference between iMOD 3.2 and iMOD 3.2.1 is that in iMOD 3.2.1 it is possible to use folder- and filenames including spaces. As a consequence, to be able to re-use your iMOD 3.2-runfile in iMOD 3.2.1 utilizing spaces in folder- and/or filenames, the folder- and/or filenames have to be between double quotes.


10.20.12Runfiles prior to iMOD 3.x

iMOD became open source mid 2014 resulting in the release of iMOD 3.0. Compared to iMOD 2.x some runfile options are not supported in iMOD 3.x releases; in the tables of Section 10.2 to Section 10.18) these options are denoted as: "Not supported in iMOD 3.x releases".
