rf_data_file


Specify that the random field will be built from a file of data. THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL CAPABILITY.

Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): STRING

Default: none

Description

As part of the capability to generate a random field representation, the user needs to specify the data used to generate the random field representation. In the case of rf_data_file, the data should reside in that file. The rows of this file represent separate samples, and the columns represent the field data. For example, if you have 100 samples of a random field of length 500, the data file will be of dimension 100 x 500. Currently, this option is not operational. THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL CAPABILITY UNDER ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT.

Default Behavior Currently, the build_source that is fully working is the dace_method_pointer. The others are not fully operational.
