request for new OGS release 5.5.2

Dear all,

I would like to release a new version of OpenGeoSys with some minor changes:

  • new Bishop model type

  • thermal fluid expansion within Richards

  • saturation and temperature dependent thermal conductivity solid

  • 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 flow model (Yaws viscosity, p-V-T tables)

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

If there are no objections I will update the trunk within this week.

Best regards
