LOCTRANS requires one configuring line on which a time transformation, automatically performed below the call to oasis_put, should be indicated:
# LOCTRANS operation $TRANSFORM
With OASIS3-MCT, time transformations are supported more generally than with previous OASIS versions with use of the coupling restart file. The coupling restart file allows the partial time transformation to be saved at the end of a run for exact restart at the start of the next run. When LOCTRANS transformations are specified, the initial coupling restart file should not contain any LOCTRANS restart fields. For the following runs, it is mandatory that the coupling restart file contains LOCTRANS restart fields coherent with the current namcouple entries. For example, it will not be possible to restart a run with a multiple field entry in the namcouple with a coupling restart file created by a run not activating this multiple file option.
This is the reason why it is now possible to specify a restart file name on the OUTPUT namcouple input line.
