GSA 10.1 – GWA Keywords


Introduction

The format of the text data file is a record by record file with fields separated by tabs orcommas. There are three variants of the text file: The default option (.gwa) reads/writes files in an international format. Data is written inSI units. The decimal point is a dot and the fields are separated by a tab. This isrecommended where files have to be transferred between offices in different countries. The tab separated option (.txt) reads/writes files in a locale specific format where the decimalpoint can be a dot or comma depending on the locale. The files can either be in SI or modelunits. The csv file option (.csv) reads/writes files in a locale specific format where the decimalpoint can be a dot or comma, and the list separator a comma or semi-colon depending on thelocale. The files can either be in SI or model units. With the default (.gwa) file extension the file is read/written in an international format. Thealternative options read/write files using the local settings for decimal points and listseparators (see 'Windows Settings') for ease of importing the files into spreadsheets.

Each record consists of a keyword and a number of fields). There may only be one record per line,but a record may be continued on more than one line. To spread a record over several lines acontinuation marker (a \) should be placed in the next field position on that line. Commentscan be included in the file on any line after a comment marker (an !) character. The \ shouldprecede any comments and anything after the continuation marker will be treated as a comment.Both comments and continuation characters should be separated from the fields by a tab. Blanklines (no space or tab characters) are acceptable. A blank field is interpreted as a null stringfor string fields and a zero for numeric fields.

Units

When saving to a text file format you can select to use either model units or SI units.
When exporting user modules .gwa format is used, with SI units.
When importing/reading text files, SI units are assumed (until a UNIT_ record is encountered - after which that unit preference is used for subsequent values)
When copying/pasting GWA data to/from the clipboard, the current model units are used.

GSA 10.1 records

Each record is of the form: KEY_WORD, value, value, value, value Version numbers may be associated with GWA keywords.Versions are specified by appending the version number to the keyword, separated by a '.',for example: NODE.2 When reading GWA records for versioned keywords, where no version is supplied the currentversion is assumed. GSA does not write the version to GWA records. A new version number is assigned only when new data is inserted into an existing keyword record.New data appended to an existing keyword record does not warrant a new version number. Where a table is referred to, this represents the following input n, x1, y1, ... xn, yn where n is the number of points, xi is the value of the abscissa and yi is the value of the ordinate. The format of the specific records is as follows:
