Quick Start

  1. Download tar ball from this website.
  2. Unzip the tar ball:
    tar -xvf mta.tar.gz
  3. Check if the binary files are executable
    cd mta
    bin/heat -h
    bin/msh_gen -h
    ./ -h
    If the binary files are executable, help information is displayed in the terminal. If not, the OS issues errors.

    The binary files can be made executable by issuing the commands
    chmod a+x bin/heat
    chmod a+x bin/msh_gen
    chmod a+x ./
  4. The MTA can now execute thermal simulations. Please refer to the manual/tutorials for additional information.
