CADET Overview

Performing a forward simulation comprises several steps:

For this example, we will use CADET-Python (see Install a frontend) CADET-Python is a file based interface for CADET. CADET still must be downloaded and built from

CADET-Python almost exactly maps to the documented CADET interface except that all dataset names are lowercase. This simplifies using the interface.

This package includes the Cadet class and H5 class. H5 can be used as a simple generic HDF5 interface.

As an example look at setting column porosity for column 1. From the CADET manual the path for this is /input/model/unit_001/COL_POROSITY

In the python interface this becomes `` sim = Cadet() sim.root.input.model.unit_001.col_porosity = 0.33 `` Once the simulation has been created it must be saved before it can be run `` sim.filename = “/path/to/where/you/want/the/file.hdf5” ``
