Handling Materials

Adding a material to the furnace
Assigning materials

When switching to Materials Mode the points and lines turn into regions. If you have a new geometry, materials must be assigned to each of these regions, before you can start computation. If only some regions were modified in Geometry Mode, as we did in the Tutorial Modifying the Sample Cartridge Assembly (SCA), then only the regions changed need to be taken care of. For simulation not only assigning materials is important, but also changing material properties.

Therefore the subjects of this tutorial are:
