The OASIS3 configuration file namcouple contains, below pre-defined keywords, all user's defined information necessary to configure a particular coupled run. The namcouple is a text file with the following characteristics:
The first part of namcouple is devoted to configuration of general parameters such as the number of models involved in the simulation, the number of fields, the communication technique, etc. The second part gathers specific information on each coupling or I/O field, e.g. their coupling period, the list of transformations or interpolations to be performed by OASIS3 and their associated configuring lines (described in more details in section 6), etc.
In the next sections, a simple namcouple example is given and
all configuring parameters are described. The additional lines
containing the different parameters required for each transformation
are described in section 6. An example of a
realistic namcouple can be found in directory /prism/util/running
