Specifications

A table of specifications for build 703 and greater is shown below.  The trial version has limited functionality, as shown, but should give you a feel for data input, creating a simulated void network model (‘unit cell’), measuring its permeability, and outputting the results for (i) a further session, (ii) as character-separated variable (csv) tables for output to other software, or (iii) as a pre-formatted pdf report of your session. The download is the same for the trial version, full academic and full professional version – its behaviour is controlled by the licence – either the default trial version, or a full Academic or Professional version activated by a plugged in Sentinel dongle that looks like a USB flash drive.
