3DADE - Multiple Sources?

Post by cmclane » Fri Feb 22, 2013 10:35 pm

It appears that 3DADE is set up to simulate a single source at a time (which is fine; especially given the very useful built-in capabilities to explore the plume from that source with color floods, cross-section cuts, animations, etc.) But sometimes a problem calls for an analysis of multiple sources that form separate or commingled plumes.

Has anyone found an efficient way to generate muliple plumes from multiple sources (one at a time) within STANMOD, and then combine and superimpose the data outside of the program in a post-processing step? (Maybe using Excel or Matlab or a Python script or something?)

Thanks for any suggestions.
