PFLOTRAN input deck¶
A PFLOTRAN input data is organized into blocks, for example the computational grid, the properties of water, etc.
The contents of a block can be entered over a single or multiple lines.
Each block starts with a keyword, and in case of a multiple-line blocks, is terminated by the keyword
Although PFLOTRAN input is generally case-independent in this case an upper-case END is required.
An input block can include one or more sub-blocks.
The following example is a block which defines the simulation time and time stepping:
TIME FINAL_TIME 1000 d INITIAL_TIMESTEP_SIZE 0.01 d MINIMUM_TIMESTEP_SIZE 1.0D-10 d MAXIMUM_TIMESTEP_SIZE 50.d0 d END
The exclamation mark
!, and the hash sign
# introduce a comment:
when one of them is encountered at the beginning or somewhere else in a line, anything that comes after it will be ignored.
It is a good practice to use indentation when including sub-blocks, as in the TIME example above. Although this makes the input dataset more readable, it is not compulsory.
There is also a keyword index available for direct reference.
