Re: Variable airfoils using the MulTabLoc USER function

Srinivasa, The error message indicates that you are missing a variable declaration in your FAST_Types.f90 file. I would recommend that you regenerate that file. If you modify the FAST_Registry.txt file in the FAST_Project VS file, it should automatically regenerate the file; otherwise, open a comman...

Re: How to Compile FAST_v7.02.00d-bjj to get a FAST.exe file?

You are probably running a 64-bit version of Matlab and have not changed the ServoDyn input file to read the 64-bit version of the DLL. You will need to go into your ServoDyn input file and change the name of the DLL_FileName parameter.

Re: How to Compile FAST_v7.02.00d-bjj to get a FAST.exe file?

The reason the Runtime Library was blank is that you have selected "All Configurations" and the individual configurations (Release, Debug) were set to different values. When all configurations are the same value, you will see a value there. If you selected "Release" or "Debu...

Re: How to Compile FAST_v7.02.00d-bjj to get a FAST.exe file?

Please post the first errors you received when compiling. It's very difficult to tell what's wrong without specific error messages. The size of the binary files (exe or dll) that are generated when compiling aren't typically useful information, unless they're 0 KB. Different versions of the compiler...

Re: Instructions for Compiling FAST

If you want to use FAST v8 with Simulink, you don't actually use the FAST executable you just compiled. Instead, you need to compile the FAST source code as a dynamic library (FAST_Library.dll), which the Simulink mex file loads and uses. There are instructions for compiling the DLL in the FAST v8 R...

Re: Availability of file .dll from FAST v7 to v8

One other thing you should check: make sure that the "Bladed Interface" inputs in the ServoDyn input file are set to whatever was hard-coded in the FAST v7 version you are using. I know some people also hard-coded other variables to pass to the interface, so maybe your FAST v7 version is a...

Re: Instructions for Compiling FAST

Hi, Srivnivasa. It looks like you are not linking with the MAP++ library. If you use Visual Studio, you need to have the appropriate MAP*.lib file specified under Project -> Properties -> Linker -> Input -> Additional Dependencies. In the VS project distributed with FAST, it is "..\..\Source\de...

Re: Instructions for Compiling FAST

Hi, Srinivasa. I have taken a look at your build log and I am a little confused. The first three errors I see are these: F:\FAST8.10micro\Source\FAST_Subs.f90(3979): error #6818: The statement following a CONTAINS is not a function-stmt or a subroutine-stmt. TYPE(FAST_MiscVarType), INTENT(IN ) :: m_...

Re: Availability of file .dll from FAST v7 to v8

The DLL shouldn't have to be changed. Do you have PCMode=5 in your ServoDyn input file? And is TPCOn < TMax?

Re: FASTv8 Error Matlab: Error from Test20

David, When you get an error about not finding 'link', that usually means either you haven't installed Microsoft Visual Studio properly (before installing Intel Visual Fortran) or you are trying to use Intel Visual Fortran from a command line without calling the proper batch files to set the paths t...

Re: FASTv8 Error Matlab: Error from Test20

Hi, David. I recently discovered an uninitialized variable in the Morison module. I do not know if that will solve the problem you are having, but it is very possible this is the problem. In Morison.f90, line 4227 (FAST 8.15), add this line: m%D_F_AM = 0.0_ReKi In context, it should look like this: ...

Re: "DISCON.dll could not be loaded"

You can get this error if you have a 32-bit DISCON.DLL and are using a 64-bit version of FAST or vice versa (64-bit DISCON.DLL with 32-bit FAST). If you have an NREL-supplied version of FAST 7, it should be a 32-bit application. You can also get this error if DISCON.DLL isn't in the current working ...
