Computing temperature

View factors have already been computed and stored with this file, so you are ready to start the computation. The time required depends on the complexity of the furnace, the settings and the parameters specified.

  1. Click on the Start computation   in the tool bar.

    In the status bar you can follow the progress of the computation.

  2. Select Computation > Show Solver Information.

    The Show Solver Information window pops up. The current residuum is indicated and you can follow the residual curve:

  3. This furnace is quite complex, so you might want to stop the computation.

    Click on the Stop computation button   in the tool bar.

  4. Click on Close to close the Show Solver Information dialog.
