In this section, it is shown how to create an ALFAcase from an existent project, with this exported project you can easily modify your project and reintroduce it, with the modification, back to ALFAsim.
Open an ALFAsim Project#
One of the easiest ways to get started is to export an existing project into a
.alfacase file directly from the interface.
Open an existing project and export it using the option
Export ALFAsim Case file... as illustrated on the figure below:
The generated file will contain all project settings, including the default values used by ALFAsim.
Note that in general default values can be omitted when producing
.alfacase files manually.
For illustration, an
.alfacase file looks like this:
pipes: - name: Conn 1 source: Node 1 target: Node 2 segments: start_positions: values: [0.0] unit: m diameters: values: [0.1] unit: m roughnesses: values: [5e-05] unit: m nodes: - name: Node 1 node_type: mass_source_boundary - name: Node 2 node_type: pressure_boundary
