Import of Kobru86 file

Components available within Kobru86 file (e.g. from the KOPRACTICE data set) can be easily imported as used as starting point for further modelling and simulation.

Only material cells will be imported from a Kobru86 file. Position of imported space boundaries must be verified manually after import.

Remark: The importing procedure uses text and material files (if contained within the directory structure) also. Two files, KOBRSTRI.TXT and MADB.TXT are looked for at each import within the directory at which the Kobru86 file is located. If either of this files cannot be found within this directory the search for these file continues in the parent directory.

Remark: An import of a Kobru86 file always creates a 2D project.

Remark: If the text file KOBRSTRI.TXT (space names), corresponding to the thermal heat bridge imported, cannot be found, AnTherm will set space names to  "KOBRSTRITXT_LN=lineNo".

Remark: If the text file MADB.TXT (properties of materials), corresponding to the thermal heat bridge imported, cannot be found, AnTherm will set material names to "MADBTXT_RN=refNo".

Post processing of imported data

Because importing of boundary conditions (spaces) from Kobru86 file is not fully automated, the project created by importing a Kobru86 file must be edited further prior to simulation.

Post processing steps:

  • Enter project description.
  • Creation of spaces. Location of spaces connected to the model must be verified and eventually adjusted manually.
    Hint: The quickest possibility to add spaces is by inserting space elements at the top of element list, thus letting all other (imported) elements to overlap them accordingly.
