Users Manual for Program CONV_MINIPROF2KPF_WHEEL  

Program CONV_MINIPROF2KPF_WHEEL converts wheel profiles measured by the miniprof profile measuring instrument into a format suitable for program KPF.

The measured profiles can be oriented relative to an unworn theoretical profile in program MPLOT by using the command func rot_orient.

Command line options

Following options are understood:

-h = Write an information message
-M = Create a master input data file.
arg(1) = Input-data-file


Input data are read in free format:

Lateral distance from the inside of the wheel to the nominal running circle.
Declared= Real*4    Default= 70 [mm]

Miniprof file of a wheel profile measurement.
Multiple files can be given by using the "*"-wildcard character.
N.B. The in-file must include the miniprof-header lines. After the first empty line starts the measured data.
Lines in INFIL beginning with the #-character are treated as comments.
Declared= Character*132    Default= '*.whl'

Reverse the profile(s) before writing the result to the output.
Declared= Character*3    Default= 'yes'

File extension of the output data file(s).
Declared= Character*132    Default= '.wheel'

Example of an input data file

Following example: Master.conv_miniprof2kpf_wheelf can be used as a master file:

 ##     Input data for program "conv_miniprof2kpf_wheel"

  turn= yes
  dist_to_origo= 70.

  infil= *.whl
  utfil_ext= .wheel
