Introduction to EDITFEKO

EDITFEKO is a scripting interface for advanced users to construct models using a high-level scripting language, which includes FOR loops and conditional IF-ELSE statements.

EDITFEKO can also be used for advanced editing of a model created in CADFEKO. Most models do not require the use of EDITFEKO, but some advanced options are not available in EDITFEKO and would require EDITFEKO.

When creating a model in EDITFEKO, the model geometry and calculation requests are entered on separate lines in the .pre file and are referred to as cards. Each card has a number of parameters that must be specified in a specific order. The language used in EDITFEKO is known as the PREFEKO language (the PREFEKO application translates the cards into a format understood by the solver and saves it to a .fek file).

Important: The order of the cards in the .pre file controls the order of the steps during the simulation.
