Before staring to simulate with OGS#IPhreeqc, an overview about the single software component and software installation will be introduced. Figure 3.1 summarizes the main important constituents. The software GINA, GMSH, and OGS Data Explorer can help to create model geometries and finite elements meshes. ParaView is applied for visualization and further post-processing steps.
