ogs5py.reader.readtec_polyline(task_root='.', task_id=None, pcs='ALL', single_file=None, trim=True)[source]

Collect TECPLOT polyline output from OGS5.

the Filenames are structured the following way: {task_id}_ply_{NAME}_t{ply_id}[_{PCS}].tec thereby the “_{PCS}” is optional and just present if a PCS_TYPE is specified in the *.out file

  • task_root (string, optional) – string containing the path to the directory containing the ogs output Default : “.”

  • task_id (string, optional) – string containing the file name of the ogs task without extension Default : None

  • pcs (string or None, optional) – specify the PCS type that should be collected Possible values are:

    • None/”” (no PCS_TYPE specified in *.out)

    • “NO_PCS”




    • “AIR_FLOW”


    • “PS_GLOBAL”







    You can get a list with all known PCS-types by setting pcs=”ALL” Default : None

  • single_file (string or None, optional) – If you want to read just a single file, you can set the path here. Default : None

  • trim (Bool, optional) – if the ply_ids are not continuous, there will be “None” values in the output list. If trim is “True” these values will be eliminated. If there is just one output for a polyline, the list will be eliminated and the output will be the single dict. Default : True


result – keys are the Polyline names and the items are lists sorted by the ply_id (it is assumed, that the ply_ids are continuous, if not, the corresponding list entries are “None”) if pcs=”ALL”, the output is a dictionary with the PCS-types as keys

Return type:
