Visualizing the calculated temperatures

You have two possibilities to visualize the temperature computation results: By scalar fields and isolines.

  1. Click on Show/hide scalar field button  .

    The scalar field will be displayed on the right furnace side.

  2. Select Visualization > Show.

  3. Click on Legend in the right column and Scalar field in the left column.

    The scalar field will be displayed on both furnace sides and the legend showing the temperature intervals appears on the right furnace side.

  4. Now you enlarge the top part of the furnace for better recognition of the small regions in this complex LGF furnace.

    Move the mouse pointer next to the top left corner of the furnace and hold in this position.

  5. Press and hold the left mouse button and draw a rectangle which includes the complete top of the furnace.

  6. Release the left mouse button.

    The cutout should look approximately like this:

  7. Click on Show/hide scalar field button  .

    The scalar field and the legend are turned off on the right furnace side. The furnace is reset to its original size.

  8. Click on the Show/hide isolines button  .

    Isolines are displayed on right furnace side, the scalar field only on the left side. For better recognition, you can enlarge the top of the furnace again.

  9. Click on Scalar field in the Show dialog.

  10. Click on the Show/hide isolines button  .

    Scalar field and isolines are turned off.
