Python interface for MIT AVL (Athena Vortex Lattice)

Project description

Python interface for MIT AVL (Athena Vortex Lattice)

Description

Currently implemented:

  • Geometry definition
  • Case definition
  • Running operating-point run cases
  • Results parsing

Not implemented (yet):

  • Mass definition
  • Eigen-mode analyses
  • Time-domain analyses

Installation

AVLWrapper can be installed from pip:

$ pip install avlwrapper

Or can be installed from Git:

$ pip install git+https://gitlab.com/relmendorp/avlwrapper.git@master

Requirements

AVL (link) should be installed. If installed on a location in $PATH or in the module directory, the wrapper will locate it with the default configuration. See Changing settings how to change the executable path to a custom location.

(optional) Ghostscript is required to save plots as PNG. Ghostscript can be installed on Linux/MacOS with a package manager:

Linux:

$ apt-get install ghostscript

MacOS:

$ brew install ghostscript

For Windows, Ghostscript can be found on the website.

Usage

For usage examples, see the example.ipynb notebook.

Changing settings

To change settings, make a local copy of the settings file:

from avlwrapper import default_config
default_config.local_copy()

By default the wrapper will look for a configuration file in the working directory and module directory. If you would like to use a different configuration file, you need to give the path to the session:

from avlwrapper import Configuration
my_config = Configuration(path_to_file)
session = Session(..., config=my_config)
