Time Series: Modeling Changing Amounts Over Periods

Posted by Jason Lillywhite

A common modeling requirement in GoldSim is to represent movement of (or changes in) amounts of material over time intervals. Common examples we have seen from our users are flows through a pipe, site runoff, and rainfall amounts. Representing this type of data can be challenging if you are not used to GoldSim's way of explicitly defining data in the Time Series element. I think a reason for this is due to our familiarity with spreadsheets, which do not require explicitly defining how the data is represented.

Top Downloads from the GoldSim Model Library

Posted by Jason Lillywhite


We are continually updating and maintaining models in our Model Library in order to help our customers answer complex questions. You may not be aware but we now have 170 models in our library which are all available for all GoldSim users. These models are either built for a specific application or just to demonstrate a generic functionality of the software. It turns out that our most widely used model examples are application specific.

We track how often each of our models are downloaded and so I thought it might be helpful for you to see which ones are the most popular. Below is a summary of our most popular model library downloads since the inception of our library in early 2013. The models listed below are shown in order of popularity, with our most popular model shown first.
