On June 14, 2017 the Dutch version of the iMOD User Day 2017 was held. During the morning session a taste of using the new iMOD-implementation of the SFR-, LAK, MNW- and UZF-packages was offered: a selection of the tutorials were practised hands-on by all participants individually (on their own laptop or a laptop provided by the Deltares Software Dagen). This was alternated by plenairy explanations of each package. The morning of the iMOD User Day was concluded with a summary of ongoing iMOD-developments.
During the afternoon a beta-testing session was organized on the new Parallel Krylov Solver Package. Participants were offered the possibility to test a beta-version of iMODFLOW containing the PKS-package. We tested the installation of the required MPI-software on various hardware and we applied the PKS-package on a number of real-world cases. The participants introduced a wide variety of laptops, most of them containing a quad-core processor which preliminary results in a speed-up of a factor of 2 to 3 depending on the rest of the hardware configuration. We would like to thank all participants for their feedback!
