Documentation and Tutorial

A PDF detailing the equations that DandeLiion is solving can be found below.

Below are some video tutorials to help you to learn how to use the simulation engine. At the bottom of this page you can find a video reviewing the Doyle-Fuller-Newman model; how it is formulated and what assumptions it contains.

  1. The basic workflow

This video covers how to:

  • Complete a simulation form

  • Monitor your job in the queue

  • Collect results (concise view of results available in the browser, or download for in-depth post-processing)

  • Revise simulation and resubmit if needed

2. Completing a simulation form - Basics

This video covers how to:

  • Either begin from a blank form, or use one of our templates

  • Modifying parameters and simulation settings

  • Use the option to keep your results private

  • Submit the simulation

3. Completing a simulation form - Troubleshooting

This video covers:

  • Modifying parameters and simulation settings

  • The Terms of Service checkbox

  • Filling out numerical fields (constant values)

  • Providing user-defined functions (conductivity, diffusivities, overpotentials)

  • Understanding possible error messages

4. Completing a simulation form - Advanced features

Here we discuss:

  • More about modifying parameters and simulation settings

  • Specifying the times during the simulation at which the user would like to store the state variables

  • Using spreadsheet software (e.g. Microsoft Excel or LibreOffice Calc)

  • Specifying the current as a function of time

5. Monitoring your simulation

This video covers how:

  • Submitted jobs appear in the simulation queue

  • As soon as processors on the server become available the status advances to running

  • Finally it moves to finished status when your results are ready to collect

  • Simulation outputs can be previewed

  • To use the unique link to the job results

  • To view a list of all jobs (Simulation Queue page)

  • Private jobs are handled

6. Collecting and using the results

Here we look at how:

  • Once the simulation finishes you can see some basic plots of the results by clicking on your job in the queue

  • Raw output (in the form of text files) can be download in a .zip archive for further post-processing

  • Raw data can be exported into a spreadsheet software (e.g. Microsoft Excel, LibreOffice Calc, MATLAB, etc.)

  • To amend and resubmit your job
