Monitoring file

A *.mon file will be generated, if the user sets monitoring points in time-dependent calculations. In the headline you find the name of the file.

The 1 st column contains the time value, the 2 nd column the r-coordinate of the monitoring point and the 1 st line of the 3 rd column contains the coordinates of the monitoring point as well as the labels of the variables in the variable group selected. The 2 nd line contains the values. These two lines are repeated for every monitoring point defined and every variable selected.

Note

Because of the ASCII format of the *.mon file labels and values are not aligned.

For the variable group temperature the output file will be structured like this:
