- Model.get_tmax(tmax=None, use_oseries=True, use_stresses=False)#
Method that checks and returns valid values for tmax.
use_oseries (bool, optional) – Obtain the tmin and tmax from the oseries. Default is True.
use_stresses (bool, optional) – Obtain the tmin and tmax from the stresses. The minimum/maximum time from all stresses is taken.
tmax – returns pandas timestamps for tmax.
- Return type:
The parameters tmin and tmax are leading, unless use_oseries is True, then these are checked against the oseries index. The tmin and tmax are checked and returned according to the following rules:
If no value for tmax is provided:
If the use_oseries argument is True, tmax is based on the oseries.
If the use_stresses argument is True, tmax is based on the stressmodels.
If a values for tmax is provided:
A pandas timestamp is made from the string.
if the use_oseries argument is True, tmax is checked against oseries.
A detailed description of dealing with tmax and timesteps in general can be found in the developers section of the docs.
