Output file (*.crys)

Sets the options for saving *.crys files.

  • Output precision

    Sets the precision of the calculated values (number of calculated digits). The default value is 15.

  • store view, not Gebhardt factors

    If you choose to store Gebhardt factors (default, check box is inactive), view factors have to be recomputed when emissivities change.

    If you choose to store view factors, more memory is required, because view and Gebhardt factors remain in memory. Gebhardt factors are recomputed when reading in view factors, but this is usually fast.

  • use compressing by default

    If you choose this option, the Open/Save as/Interpolate dialogs automatically select *.crys.gz as default File type.

Analysis files

Sets the options for saving auxiliary files, e.g. monitor data files.

  • adjust monitor file names

    Usually, the names of monitor files have as prefix the name of *.crys file. In case you save the file with other name, might happen that more than one *.crys file to use the same monitor files to save results, so the monitor files could be damaged.

    If you choose to adjust monitor file names, when you save the *.crys file with other name, the files defined in monitor section are automatically renamed to have the new *.crys file name as prefix.


    The adjustment is only done for monitor file names containing *.crys file name as prefix.
  • Column separator

    The computation results are written in auxiliary files in a table format. The separator between columns can be set in this field in order to allow users to use different post processing tools.
