class fastoad.openmdao.validity_checker.ValidityStatus(value)[source]

Bases: enum.IntEnum

Simple enumeration for validity status.

OK = 0
TOO_LOW = -1
class fastoad.openmdao.validity_checker.ValidityDomainChecker(limits: Optional[Dict[str, tuple]] = None, logger_name: Optional[str] = None)[source]

Bases: object

Decorator class that checks variable values against limit bounds

This class aims at producing a status of out of limits variables at the end of an OpenMDAO computation.

The point is to allow to define limit bounds when defining an OpenMDAO system, but to make the check on the OpenMDAO problem after the run.

When defining an OpenMDAO system, use this class as Python decorator to define validity domains:

class MyComponent(om.explicitComponent):

The above code will check values against lower and upper bounds that have been defined when adding OpenMDAO outputs.

Next code shows how to define lower and upper bounds, for inputs and/or outputs.

        "a:variable:with:two:bounds": (-10.0, 1.0),
        "a:variable:with:lower:bound:only": (0.0, None),
        "a:variable:with:upper:bound:only": (None, 4.2),
class MyComponent(om.explicitComponent):

The defined domain limits supersedes lower and upper bounds from OpenMDAO output definitions, but only in the frame of ValidityDomainChecker. In any case, OpenMDAO process is not affected by usage of ValidityDomainChecker.

Validity status can be obtained through log messages from Python logging module after problem has been run with:


Warnings: - Units of limit values defined in ValidityDomainChecker are assumed to be the

same as in add_input() and add_output() statements of decorated class

  • Validity check currently only applies to scalar values

  • limits – a dictionary where keys are variable names and values are two-values tuples that give lower and upper bound. One bound can be set to None.

  • logger_name – The named of the logger that will be used. If not provided, name of current module (i.e. “__name__””) will be used.
