Smoluchowski Solver provides an efficient way to solve Smoluchowski diffusion equation with Finite Element Tool Kit (FETK). It reads the potential profile from APBS or Dr. Benzhuo Lu's PB-BEM solver. It can calculate the kon constant of an enzyme during the steady-state and time-dependent Smoluchowski diffusion ( Currently only steady-state Smoluchowski solver was released.) It is also able to output concentration values of each finite element node in the diffusion domain and the output can be viewed by OpenDX. SMOL was programmed by Yuhui Cheng , and is free for download and use. Comments from users are welcome (please include SMOL in the subject of your email).
Recently we continue developing the SMOL solver and successfully applied it to cardiac ventricular myocytes. It read meshes directly deriving from experimental EM images and predict Ca2+ time-dependent distribution, as well as its mobile or immobile buffers. Users can model the detailed 3D Ca2+ signaling transduction information by running this version of CSMOL. The output snpshots can be viewed by GMV or OpenDX. It need to libraries from Finite Element Tool Kit (FETK). Users need to download and install the most recent version of FETK before installing CSMOL. The detailed installation guide can be found in the source code. CSMOL was programmed by Yuhui Cheng, and is free for download and use. Comments from users are welcome (please include CSMOL in the subject of your email).
