# study_analysis module¶

Generate a N2 and XDSM into files (and/or web page) from an Excel description of the MDO problem.

Classes:

 StudyAnalysis(xls_study_path) A MDO study analysis from an Excel specification. XLSStudyParser(xls_study_path) Parse the input Excel file that describe the GEMSEO study.
class gemseo.utils.study_analysis.StudyAnalysis(xls_study_path)[source]

A MDO study analysis from an Excel specification.

Generate a N2 (equivalent to the Design Structure Matrix) diagram, showing the couplings between the disciplines, and a XDSM (Extended Design Structure Matrix), showing the MDO process, from an Excel specification of the inputs, outputs, design variables, objectives and constraints.

The input Excel files contains one sheet per discipline. The name of the sheet shall have the discipline name. The sheet shall have at least two columns, one for inputs and one for outputs, with the following format:

Disc1

Inputs

Outputs

in1

out1

in2

out2

Empty lines are ignored.

The scenarios (at least one, or multiple for distributed formulations) must appear in a Excel sheet name starting by “Scenario”.

The sheet shall have the following columns, with some constraints :

• All of them are mandatory, even if empty for the constraints.

• The order does not matter.

• One and only one formulation must be declared.

• At least one objective must be provided, and one design variable.

Scenario1

Design variables

Objective function

Constraints

Disciplines

Formulation

Options

Options values

in1

out1

out2

Disc1

MDF

tolerance

0.1

Disc2

main_mda_class

MDAJacobi

All the objective functions and constraints must be outputs of a discipline, not necessarily the one of the current sheet. All the design variables must be inputs of a discipline, not necessarily the one of the current sheet.

The columns ‘Options’ and ‘Options values’ are used to pass the formulation options. Note that for string type ‘Option values’, the value can be written with or without the “” characters.

To use multi level MDO formulations, create multiple scenarios, and add the name of the sub scenarios in the list of disciplines of the main (system) scenario.

An arbitrary number of levels can be generated this way (three, four levels etc formulations).

Methods:

 generate_n2([file_path, show_data_names, ...]) Generate a N2 plot for the disciplines list. generate_xdsm(output_dir[, latex_output, ...]) Create an xdsm.json file from the current scenario.
AVAILABLE_DISTRIBUTED_FORMULATIONS = ('BiLevel', 'BLISS98B')
generate_n2(file_path='n2.pdf', show_data_names=True, save=True, show=False, figsize=(15, 10))[source]

Generate a N2 plot for the disciplines list.

Parameters
• file_path (str) –

The file path of the figure.

By default it is set to n2.pdf.

• show_data_names (bool) –

If true, the names of the coupling data is shown; otherwise, circles are drawn, which size depends on the number of coupling names.

By default it is set to True.

• save (bool) –

If True, save the figure to file_path.

By default it is set to True.

• show (bool) –

If True, show the plot.

By default it is set to False.

• figsize (Tuple[float, float]) –

The size of the figure.

By default it is set to (15, 10).

Return type

None

generate_xdsm(output_dir, latex_output=False, open_browser=False)[source]

Create an xdsm.json file from the current scenario.

Parameters
• output_dir (str) – The directory where the XDSM html files are generated.

• latex_output (bool) –

If True, build the .tex, .tikz and .pdf files.

By default it is set to False.

• open_browser (bool) –

If True, open in a web browser.

By default it is set to False.

Returns

The MDOScenario that contains the DesignSpace, the formulation, but the disciplines have only correct input and output grammars but no _run methods so that can’t be executed

Return type

gemseo.core.mdo_scenario.MDOScenario

class gemseo.utils.study_analysis.XLSStudyParser(xls_study_path)[source]

Bases: object

Parse the input Excel file that describe the GEMSEO study.

The Excel file must contain one sheet per discipline. The name of the sheet shall have the name of the discipline. The sheet shall have at least two columns, one for the inputs and one for the outputs, with the following format:

Inputs

Outputs

Design variables

Objective function

Constraints

in1

out1

in1

out1

out2

in2

out2

Empty lines are ignored. All the objective functions and constraints must be outputs of a discipline, not necessarily the one of the current sheet. All the design variables must be inputs of a discipline, not necessarily the one of the current sheet.

Type

Dict[str,MDODiscipline]

scenarios
