To restart a previous simulation, some files have to be in the standard directory. If the user did not remove any file no problems may occur.
These files are :
TACITE.JOB TACITE.PVT TACITE.STA TACITE.TRA SimName.JNB SimName SimName.GEO SimName.MSH SimName.PVTSimName.SCE SimName.STO SimName.THE SimName.TOP
and the files from wich restart :
SimName_#.RTT SimName_# SimName_#.GEO SimName_#.MSH SimName_#.PVT SimName_#.SCE SimName_#.STO SimName_#.THE SimName_#.TOP.
Keep in mind that TACITE.PVT TACITE.STA TACITE.TRA files contain data of the last compuation permitting to TACITE a restart copmutation. The SimName_#.RTT file is a concatenation of these files and so a restart is always possible even if TACITE.* files are not archieved.
ActionSome modifications to SimName.SCE file have to be done.
1- Replace the STABILIZE= statement by RESTART=SimName_#
2- Increase the STOPTIME as STOPTIME= old_stoptime+restart_time.
3- Append the scenario. The appenended events have to be coherent with the new STOPTIME i.e. not to happen after STOPTIME.
4- To run the restart type : tacite.out SimName
5- The screen must display time increasing from old_stoptime
6- The results and parametric file are created as SimName_# +1.* Output data management
