Materials Mode

After having designed or modified the geometry, you need to define materials and their properties and to assign a material to each of the furnace's regions. In order to improve the simulation result, materials can be replaced and their properties can be modified. Materials have to be assigned before you start computing.

For new geometries you have three options for getting materials:

In Materials Mode only the file menu and the Materials dialog invoked by the Settings menu are available. For zooming use the left mouse button.

For dealing with the components of the Materials dialog and assigning materials in Materials Mode see
