Simul is a series of simulation software for electrophoresis which has been continuously developing. It simulates the movement of ions in liquid solutions in an electric field. It solves numerically a set of nonlinear partial differential equations and nonlinear algebraic equations describing the continuity of ionic movement and acid-base equilibria. Simul 6.1 is a continuation of the previous version 5. It has been designed using the latest programming tools. Its code was rewritten using Qt platform with fully standard-conformant C++ and utilizes the MSVC compiler. The computation engine has been completely redesigned in order to take full advantage of parallelization and multithreading computation. It is 5 – 15 times faster than Simul 5.
The program needs 64 bit Windows environment. The program is packed in the file 'Simul61Run.zip'. After downloading and unpacking, copy the directory 'Simul61Run' to the position in which you wish to have it. The package contains the program itself, example data and a user manual. Double click 'simul6.exe' to run it.
Simul 5 is a previous version of the series. Complexation mode of Simul 5 Complex enables to simulate electrophoretic separations in systems with complexation agents such as, e.g., cyclodextrins, enabling us to simulate enantioseparation in electromigration.
The program needs Windows environment. The program is packed in the file 'Simul_5_Complex_Release_2011.zip'. After downloading and unpacking, copy the directory 'Simul 5 Complex Release 2011' to the position in which you wish to have it. Double click the 'Simul 5.exe' to run the simulator.
