New Lookup Table Interpolation Options: Lookup Table elements in Version 10 have two new interpolation options for independent variables. The Next lower option selects the largest value of the independent variable in the lookup table that is less than or equal to the value specified. The Exact only option issues a fatal error if the specified value does not exactly match an independent variable value in the lookup table.

 

The GoldSim Model Library allows GoldSim users to build on the experience and knowledge of others by sharing models. The Library is available from within the GoldSim Resource Center (GRC).

New models that have recently been added include:

Model 77: This model addresses the need to randomly arrange a fixed number of indexed items using a looping container and a probabability distribution.

If you have a model that you think would be worth posting to the library, please send it, along with a description, to support@goldsim.com.

The two-day workshop will focus on using GoldSim in the mining industry, with particular emphasis on water managment. It will be of value to new users, and will also serve as an excellent refresher course (and introduction to new features) for existing users.

The cost is AUD750 per attendee. Free temporary licences will be provided to all attendees who require a licence. Breakfast and lunch both days are also included in the price.

Vector and Matrix Constructor Improvements in Version 10

In previous versions of GoldSim, vector and matrix constructors could only be used with static values. Constructors have been completely revised to permit constructors to link to dynamic values, and also have a host of other new capabilities to make your modeling easier. This article and the accompanying model demonstrate the new capabilities of the constructor functions.
