The model results below have been calculate using the full version of ENVI-met (BUSINESS/SCIENCE, V5.5.). The simulation time with an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX with 32 cores, a maximum clock speed of 4.2 Hz and 128 GB of RAM is approximatly 182 hours. The outputs generated by the free BASIC version contain much fewer data.
