resqpy.derived_model.global_fault_throw_scaling(epc_file, source_grid=None, scaling_factor=None, ref_k0=0, ref_k_faces='top', cell_range=0, store_displacement=False, inherit_properties=False, inherit_realization=None, inherit_all_realizations=False, inherit_gcs=True, new_grid_title=None, new_epc_file=None)

Rewrites epc with a new grid with all the fault throws multiplied by the same scaling factor.

  • epc_file (string) – file name to rewrite the model’s xml to; if source grid is None, model is loaded from this file

  • source_grid (grid.Grid object, optional) – if None, the epc_file is loaded and it should contain one ijk grid object (or one ‘ROOT’ grid) which is used as the source grid

  • scaling_factor (float) – the scaling factor to apply to the throw across all split pillars

  • ref_k0 (integer, default 0) – the reference layer (zero based) to use when determining the pre-existing throws

  • ref_k_faces (string, default 'top') – ‘top’ or ‘base’ identifying which bounding interface to use as the reference

  • cell_range (integer, default 0) – the number of cells away from faults which will have depths adjusted to spatially smooth the effect of the throw scaling (ie. reduce sudden changes in gradient due to the scaling)

  • store_displacement (boolean, default False) – if True, 3 grid property parts are created, one each for x, y, & z displacement of cells’ centres brought about by the fault throw scaling

  • inherit_properties (boolean, default False) – if True, the new grid will have a copy of any properties associated with the source grid

  • inherit_realization (int, optional) – realization number for which properties will be inherited; ignored if inherit_properties is False

  • inherit_all_realizations (boolean, default False) – if True (and inherit_realization is None), properties for all realizations will be inherited; if False, only properties with a realization of None are inherited; ignored if inherit_properties is False or inherit_realization is not None

  • inherit_gcs (boolean, default True) – if True, any grid connection set objects related to the source grid will be inherited by the modified grid

  • new_grid_title (string) – used as the citation title text for the new grid object

  • new_epc_file (string, optional) – if None, the source epc_file is extended with the new grid object; if present, a new epc file (& associated h5 file) is created to contain the derived grid (& crs)


new grid (grid.Grid object), with all fault throws scaled by the scaling factor


a scaling factor of 1 implies no change; calls fault_throw_scaling(), see also documentation for that function
