- Model.get_tmin(tmin=None, use_oseries=True, use_stresses=False)#
Method that checks and returns valid values for tmin.
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.
tmin – returns pandas timestamps for tmin.
- 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 tmin is provided:
If the use_oseries argument is True, tmin is based on the oseries.
If the use_stresses argument is True, tmin is based on the stressmodels.
If a values for tmin is provided:
A pandas timestamp is made from the string
If the use_oseries argument is True, tmin is checked against oseries.
