Batch for FAST

Hello everyone,

Since I wonder run many cases for different environmental conditions, I need to change some parameters like Hs and Tp. Is there any batch files that include in FAST files for this purpose? Thanks.

Kind Regards

Dear Junyi,

A similar question has been asked before–see e.g. the forum topic found here: http://forums.nrel.gov/t/nwtc-design-codes-general-questions/477/1. Unfortunately, we have not yet been budgeted the time to upgrade our internal RunIEC script enough to support its public distribution.

There is a simple MS DOS script provided with FAST v8 named “CertTest.bat” that we use to run the 26 certification tests. Another option is to start with the MATLAB scripts available in the FAST v8 archive used to read and write FAST input files. You could probably start with these and modify them to suite your needs.

Best regards,
