Download of the GEMS version of CEMDATA14

To use the CEMDATA14 data base in GEMS-PSI package, please download it to your hard disk and perform the following steps:

  1. Unzip the downloaded zip file (contains a directory named "DB.default") into a temporary directory, e.g. as /Tempfiles/DB.default
  2. Find where you have GEMS installed (on Windows, usually under C:\Program Files\GEMS2) the /program/DB.default directory. Remove in that directory all files that contain "specific" as part of the file name (if any such files are present there).  Under Linux, this may need a root password.
  3. Copy all files from /Tempfiles/DB.default into the /program/DB.default directory.
  4. Start GEMS and create a new project. In the "Selection of Independent Components..." dialog, turn on "Kernel(Nagra-PSI)" and "specific". Tick on "Solutions". This will link the CEMDATA database files as a specific extension to the kernel Nagra-PSI database. "Solutions" will cause GEMS to take Phase records for cement solid solutions, such as C-S-H or ettringite.
  5. Select Independent Components to form the system and click "Ok" to proceed as usual.
