Problems simulating a reaction and after a mix step
«

Hi,
I would like to do a reaction usings steps and with the result of each step do a mix.
I have written this script:
REACTION 1
CaCl2 1 # Reactant, followed by stoichiometric coefficient
Br 0.001 # Tracer species
0.001 in 10 steps
use solution 2
Save solution 3
end
MIX 1
1 0.25 # takes fraction 0.25 of solution 1
3 0.75 # adds fraction 0.75 of solution 3
Gut then I only obtain one result instead of ten.
Can someone help me?
Thanks

Unfortunately, it is not possible to multiple MIX calculations with a single definition. Unlike REACTION, you must make each MIX explicitly.
I am not sure which solutions are supposed to be reacted and mixed, but here is an example of a couple of reaction and mix steps.
SOLUTION 1
SOLUTION 2
END
REACTION 1
CaCl2 1 # Reactant, followed by stoichiometric coefficient
Br 0.001 # Tracer species
0.0001
END
USE solution 2
USE reaction 1
SAVE solution 3
END
MIX 1
1 0.25 # takes fraction 0.25 of solution 1
3 0.75 # adds fraction 0.75 of solution 3
SAVE solution 2
END
USE solution 2
USE reaction 1
SAVE solution 3
END
MIX 1
1 0.25 # takes fraction 0.25 of solution 1
3 0.75 # adds fraction 0.75 of solution 3
save solution 2
END

Thanks dlparkhurst,
Following your example I jhave tried to do that:
REACTION 1
CaCl2 1 # Reactant, followed by stoichiometric coefficient
Br 0.001 # Tracer species
0.001
END
use solution 2
Save solution 3
END
MIX 1
1 0.25 # takes fraction 0.25 of solution 1
3 0.75 # adds fraction 0.75 of solution 3
save solution 4
END
Use solution 3
Use reaction 1
Save solution 3
END
MIX 1
1 0.25 # takes fraction 0.25 of solution 1
3 0.75 # adds fraction 0.75 of solution 3
save solution 5
END
Use solution 3
Use reaction 1
Save solution 3
END
MIX 1
1 0.25 # takes fraction 0.25 of solution 1
3 0.75 # adds fraction 0.75 of solution 3
save solution 6
END
But the program gives me an error that solution 3 is not found.
Thanks a lot

A solution is SAVEd only after a reaction calculation, and a reaction calculation requires a SOLUTION and another reactant. So,
END
USE solution 2
SAVE solution 3
END
does not produce a reaction, and a solution is not saved.
Replace with
COPY solution 2 3

Thanks dlparkhurst.
Now I have another problem. I try to get the results in an output file but I only obtain the result of one of te silulations. I know that the problem is something related with the position of END in -selected output command but I can't find the solution. Can you help me?
Thanks in advance,
Snavea

Put an END before REACTION 2 and before REACTION 3.
I am not sure you need two SELECTED_OUTPUT data blocks. If you keep only the first, you will get a line for each MIX calculation. I also do not think you need the "USE solution" (except the first one) if you are using MIX; the MIX takes precedence anyway.
