analysis_components


Provide additional identifiers to analysis drivers.

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): STRINGLIST

Default: no additional identifiers

Description

The optional analysis_components specification allows the user to provide additional identifiers (e.g., mesh file names) for use by the analysis drivers. This is particularly useful when the same analysis driver is to be reused multiple times for slightly different analyses. The specific content within the strings is open-ended and can involve whatever syntax is convenient for a particular analysis driver. The number of analysis components $n_c$ should be an integer multiple of the number of drivers $n_d$, and the first $n_c/n_d$ component strings will be passed to the first driver, etc.
