flopy.modflow.mfpval Module

mfpval module. Contains the ModflowPval class. Note that the user can access the ModflowPval class as flopy.modflow.ModflowPval.

Additional information for this MODFLOW package can be found at the Online MODFLOW Guide.

class flopy.modflow.mfpval.ModflowPval(model, pval_dict=None, extension='pval', unitnumber=None, filenames=None)

MODFLOW Mult Package Class.

Parameters:

model : model object

The model object (of type flopy.modflow.mf.Modflow) to which this package will be added.

pval_dict : dict

Dictionary with pval data for the model. pval_dict is typically instantiated using load method.

extension : string

Filename extension (default is ‘pval’)

unitnumber : int

File unit number (default is None).

filenames : str or list of str

Filenames to use for the package. If filenames=None the package name will be created using the model name and package extension. If a single string is passed the package will be set to the string. Default is None.

Notes

Parameters are supported in Flopy only when reading in existing models. Parameter values are converted to native values in Flopy and the connection to “parameters” is thus nonexistent.

Examples

>>> import flopy
>>> m = flopy.modflow.Modflow()
>>> pval_dict = flopy.modflow.ModflowZon(m, pval_dict=pval_dict)
static load(f, model, ext_unit_dict=None)

Load an existing package.

Parameters:

f : filename or file handle

File to load.

model : model object

The model object (of type flopy.modflow.mf.Modflow) to which this package will be added.

ext_unit_dict : dictionary, optional

If the arrays in the file are specified using EXTERNAL, or older style array control records, then f should be a file handle. In this case ext_unit_dict is required, which can be constructed using the function flopy.utils.mfreadnam.parsenamefile.

Returns:

pval : ModflowPval dict

Examples

>>> import flopy
>>> m = flopy.modflow.Modflow()
>>> mlt = flopy.modflow.ModflowPval.load('test.pval', m)
write_file()

Write the package file.

Returns:None

Notes

Not implemented because parameters are only supported on load
