Aimy Bazylak’s group at UofT has published the first official article using OpenPNM. The title is “Investigating Inlet Condition Effects on PEMFC GDL Liquid Water Transport through Pore Network Modeling”, and as the name suggests they look at the different water invasion patterns arising from different boundary conditions for the IP process. The article’s bibliograhic info and a link can be found on the Publications page.
The OpenPNM PNM Team are happy to announce the release of version 1.2.0. The details of this release are listed below. A large amount of work went on behind the scenes regarding testing and ensuring good coverage. This release also introduced a few new Network query methods and a very useful topological manipulation tool called `subdivide`. In general we expect new releases to be a bit more regular, with minor versions appearing more often.
* Major Reorganization of the Network topology manipulations methods. There is now a topology class in the Utilities submodule, which houses all manipulation methods such as extend, trim, stitch and so on. Helper/wrapper methods are present on Network objects to maintain backwards compatibility.
* Added a `subdivide` method to the suite of topology manipulation tools, which allows single pores to be divided into many pores to produce hierarchical networks.
* New Network methods: `find_nearby_pores` and `find_clusters2`
* Vastly improved test coverage in the form of adding a unit test framework, TravisCI integration, Coveralls coverage checking, PEP8 compatibility
* Numerous bug fixes
