WellSim Version 4.12.05.26 has been released on 26 May 2017

New features in this version include:

  • Ability to edit secondary feedzones while running discharge simulations. This greatly increases user productivity and will often result in a better understanding of the wellbore characteristics.
  • Improved detection of parameter changes that require simulations to be run again to ensure the results reflect the current parameters.

    == Changes of external parameters (e.g. well geometry) cause all affected simulations to be coloured red until the simulation is re-run.
    == Changes of internal parameters (e.g. enthalpy) requires the simulation to be re-run before the output can be saved.
