Python interface for MIT AVL (Athena Vortex Lattice)

Project description

Python interface for MIT AVL (Athena Vortex Lattice)


Currently implemented: * Geometry definition * Case definition * Running operating-point run cases * Results parsing

Not implemented (yet): * Mass definition * Eigen-mode analyses * Time-domain analyses


AVLWrapper can be installed from pip:

$ pip install avlwrapper

Or can be installed from Git:

$ pip install git+

AVL (link) should be installed.

By default, the wrapper will check the current directory, the module directory and the system path. See Changing settings how to change the executable path to a custom location.


For an usage example, see

Changing settings

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

from avlwrapper import default_config

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)
