8.5 Time Information: Time Step and Time Series

For StandardRESQML v2.0.1

Properties can be associated with optional time information. These types of time information are available:

  • Time Step. Directly related to the time step of a flow simulator, which is an index that is only defined in the context of a specific simulation data set.
  • Time Series. A series of ordered time stamps (a time produced by software when something significant happens, such as saving a file). A series can itself be the continuation of another parent time series, with which it can overlap. A property value references an entry in a time series through its time index.

If you export the results of a simulation run, all property values representing the same property over time must have the same name and refer to the same time series.
