The concert file

ORCHESTRA model systems are defined in text files.

The central input file is the CONCERT.xml which contains the complete model calculation recipe in terms of cells, input files, output files, calculators, connections between cells etc.

Have a look at the example below, which defines a single-cell equilibrium calculation that;

  • reads input from the file “feed.dat”,
  • performs an equilibrium calculation,
  • and writes results to “output.dat”.

This loop is repeated for as long as input data lines are present in input.dat,

The actual equilibrium calculations are defined within the chemistry1.inp file.

As defined here this model will require 4 other input files: column.dat, chemistry1.inp, feed.dat and output.dat.
