At the present time, a functioning version of simul2000 is available at the following link:Zenodo simul2000 download
There are two versions of the code with slightly different input formats, one for Suns (UNIX), the other for Macs/LINUX (MAC). There is also a Windows version (I cannot provide advice for the Widnows version). The users guide for simulps12 is included. There are also some utility programs created by others that you may find useful, but I am not able to provide any assistance for them. IMPORTANT - send email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you download the code so that you can be informed of future revisions or bug fixes! One major change from previous simul versions is the ability to link nodes, as described in Thurber and Eberhart-Phillips (Computers & Geosciences, v. 25, 809-818, 1999). The input velocity model file can include node-linking information in the following form immediately after any fixed nodes are indicated:
0 0 0 [indicates end of fixed node list] 6 3 2 [master node] 2 [indicates link type - linear or constant] 5 3 2 [slave node] 0 0 0 [indicates end of slave node list] 14 3 21 [master node] 1 [indicates link type - linear or constant] 13 3 21 [slave node] 15 3 21 [slave node] 0 0 0 [indicates end of slave node list] 0 0 0 [indicates end of linked nodes list] This is followed by the usual velocity grid. The other significant change is the ability to model attenuation structure. A "switch" controlling this option has been added - iusep and iuses are now followed by parameter iuseq.Please send comments or concerns to email@example.com
To invert for velocity, iuseq must be 0 and iusep and iuses can be 1 or 0 according to the user's needs. To invert for Q, iuseq must be 1 and iusep and iuses must be 0.
