Dear OGS-users,

I committed the new OGS version 5.5.02 to the trunk.
This release introduces

  • new Bishop model type

  • thermal fluid expansion within Richards flow model

  • saturation and temperature dependent thermal conductivity of solid phase (input by fct-table)

  • bugfix Richards: neglecting storage from dp/dS in the saturated case

  • small changes in order to allow the use of some material models within Richards

  • new input possibility for the base heat diffusion coefficient (Richards)

Thanks to Wenqing, Norihiro and Lars!

Best regards
