You can use ContamFactorial to generate sets of CONTAM project files (PRJ) based on a base input file and a set of user-defined values. This enables you to generate input files to perform parametric/factorial analysis. While the program was developed for use with CONTAM, it can be utilized to generate input files for any software that utilizes text-based input files, e.g., EnergyPlus.

This Python tool can be used to run EnergyPlus-CONTAM simulations on multiple IDF/PRJ input files concurrently. This tool will combine multiple IDFs and PRJs into ContamFMU files and launch the simulations using a multiprocessing pool. You provide the IDF, PRJ, and associated files required as boundary conditions, e.g., EnergyPlus weather (EPW) and CONTAM contaminant (CTM) files.
A README.md file is provided for detailed usage information along with example input files that are ready to run using EnergyPlus version 9.1 and CONTAM version 3.4 (included in blank FMU file provided).
