Show

This dialog is opened via Visualization Menu.

With the Show dialog you can visualize in the Main Window the mesh, the temperature values (left and right side of the furnace) and the values of any other variable (only right side).

Description

Left

If a check box in the left column is activated, the mesh, regions and/or temperature are visualized on the left side of the furnace in the Main Window.

Tip

Apart from mesh and regions, on the left side you can only visualize the temperature, but you can do this independently from the variable selected in the variable list box. So you can display the temperature at any time on the left side and another variable on the right side.

Right

If a check box in the right column is activated, the mesh, regions and/or computed values of the variable selected in the variable list box are visualized on the right side of the furnace in the Main Window.

Regions

Shows the regions. This option is set by default for the left and the right side.

To show respectively hide the regions in the right side you can also click on the show/hide geometry button  .

mesh

Shows the mesh.

To show respectively hide the mesh in the right side you can also click on the show/hide mesh button  .

Isolines

Shows isolines of the computed values of the scalar variable selected in the variable list box.

The properties of the isolines can be specified in the Isolines dialog, which you call by selecting Visualization > Options for Scalar Fields, see Options for Scalar Fields.

To show respectively hide the isolines in the right side you can also click the Show/hide isolines button  .

Vector field

Shows a representation of the computed values of the vector-valued variable selected in the variable list box, with arrows. The arrow length is proportional to the value of the current variable at the point given by the tail of the vector.

You can double (halve) the arrow length by pressing the greater ( less ) key (i.e. the key with “>” ( “<” ) on it) and reset the length by pressing the space key.

Scalar field

Shows a color representation of the computed values of the variable selected in the variable list box.

The properties of this representation can be specified in the Isolines dialog, which you call by selecting Visualization > Options for Scalar Fields, see Options for Scalar Fields.

To show respectively hide the color representation in the right side you can also click the Show/hide scalar field button  .

Legend

Shows the legend for the Scalar field. The properties of the legend can be specified in the isolines dialog, which you call by selecting Visualization > Options for Scalar Fields, see Options for Scalar Fields.
