Combining CSV files of simulation results

This script is a subset of a larger script where I have the output of many test simulations in the form of CSVs. Each file starts with the model name and includes the number of elements in my file. For example, edge_16elem_out.csv would be a first-order model (edge) with 16 elements. Another example would be edge3_1024elem_out.csv. I have created several helper functions and am curious if there are ways to improve this code. I am using Python 2.7.
