This Add-In simulates gas consumption due to mineral oxidation (CTRAN/W) and the heat generation (TEMP/W) caused by the associated exothermic reaction. It is ideal for modeling the oxidation of sulfidic materials in mine wastes that lead to acid mine drainage.
Requires GeoStudio 2018 R2 or newer.

How to Install and Use an Add-In
This Add-In provides the following functions:
First Order Exothermic Heat Flux
Temperature and Concentration Reaction Rate Limits
GeoStudio Add-Ins can be used in place of any internal GeoStudio function (such as those under the Define menu) or SIGMA/W material model.
Some Add-Ins are distributed ready-to-use on the geoslope.com web site or from third parties, but you can also write your own using the Add-In SDK.
Click “Install Add-In” above to download a self-extracting zip file containing the Add-In. The Add-In will be installed in the Add-In folder. By default the Add-In folder is %APPDATA%\GEO-SLOPE\AddIn, but it can be changed in GeoStudio under Edit - Options.
To uninstall the Add-In, simply delete the .dll from the Add-In folder.
After installing the Add-In, its functions can be used under Define - Functions in GeoStudio:
To figure out what units to use when entering values, first determine if your file's Units of Computation are U.S. Customary or SI (see Define - Project Properties - Settings), then use the units indicated in the appropriate column.
