Issue while converting from FAST v7 to FAST v8

Dear all,

I am currently moving to FAST v8 and I’ve been trying to use the ConvertFAST7to8 MATLAB sub-routine to do that. Nevertheless, I am struggling with the following error:

Could anyone help me with this? My FASTv7 version is FAST v7.02.00d-bjj and my FASTv8 version is FAST_v8.16.00a-bjj.



Does your FAST7 file contain a variable called “AeroFile”? It’s possible your FAST7 model calls it something else (possibly “ADFile”). If you don’t have “AeroFile”, change the name of the variable in the input file that points to the file containing AeroDyn input parameters. Or, if you have a lot of files, you could change the ConvertFAST7to8 script to look for a different variable name if “AeroFile” doesn’t exist in the FAST7 file.
