Import only active variables from tabular data file


This keyword is related to the topics:


Alias: none

Argument(s): none


By default, files for tabular data imports are expected to contain columns for all variables, active and inactive. The keyword active_only indicates that the file to import contains only the active variables.

This option should only be used in contexts where the inactive variables have no influence, for example, building a surrogate over active variables, with the state variables held at nominal. It should not be used in more complex nested contexts, where the values of inactive variables are relevant to the function evaluations used to build the surrogate.
