The simulation flow of PROMIS-NT is completely controlled by statements given on the input deck. These are responsible for the general simulator setup including information about input and output files, the simulation time, and process temperature progression as well as for the definition of the entire set of diffusion modeling equations (4.1) - (4.10).
PROMIS-NT is designed to allow for the development of new diffusion models by solely understanding the structure and the sequence of Model evaluations defined on this input deck. Therefore the following sections provide a detailed description of this interface both for the purpose of documentation and for demonstrating the extent of application specific knowledge still required for extending a simulator to such a degree.
It should be noted in advance that within the input deck all indices contained in (4.1) - (4.10) are replaced by the according MDL names of the regarding materials and quantities placed inside the MDL array subscription operator ''. Furthermore the contents of the following tables reflect the documentation and default values associated with the regarding Parameters and Models, which will be forwarded to the user by the Algorithm Library in case that missing or erroneous definitions are found on the input deck.
