[Reload] (R)

Description: Reload calculation result.

When you select [Reload], the calculation result is reloaded, and if new calculation results are output by the solver, the timesteps on [Animation Toolbar] is updated.

[Delete] (D)

Description: Delete calculation result.

When you select [Delete], a dialog to confirm whether you really want to delete the calculation results opens. Click on [Yes] to delete calculation result.

[Manage simple operation results] (M)

Description: Manage simple operation results.

Simple operation results are values defined as results of simple numerical operations between calculation results.

“Simple Operation Result List” dialog ( Figure 91) is shown, and you can manage simple operation result list on this dialog.

Adding and editing simple operation results

On “Simple Operation Result List” dialog, you can open “Edit Simple Operation Result” dialog (Figure 92) by clicking on “Add” or “Edit” button.

Name: Please input the name of the simple operation result

Calculation results for input: You can add or delete calculation results for input by clicking on “Add” or “Delete” button below. Please refer to Table 8 for detail on the items in the table.

Definitioni of variable: Please describe how to calculate the simple operation result value, by JavaScript language. Please refer to Examples of definition of simple operation result for examples of how to describe the definition. You can use the variables defined in “Calculation results for input” as input of the definition.

When you click on “Test” button, the value of simple operation result is calculated from the content of “Definition of variable” and the values of “Value for testing” in “Calculation results for input”. If the definition contains problems, an error message is shown.

Table 8 Detail of “Calculation results for input”
Item name Description
Result name The name of calculation result for input. You can select from combobox
Variable name The name of variable that you can use to refer the value in “Definition of variable”

Examples of definition of simple operation result

Examples of simple operation result definitions is shown here.

You can define simple operation results by using functions like below:

  • Simple operators (List 1)
  • JavaScript built-in functions (List 2)
  • Control syntaxes like if, while (List 3)
  • User defined functions (List 4)

Please refer to web pages for detail of JavaScript language, like the link below:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web/JavaScript

List 1 Examples of definition of simple operation result (Simple operators)
return D * D;
List 2 Examples of definition of simple operation result (Built-in functions)
return Math.sqrt(D);
List 3 Examples of definition of simple operation result (Control syntaxes)
var d2 = D;
while (d2 < 1000) {
  d2 = d2 * 2;
}
if (d2 > 1500) {
  d2 = 1500;
}

return d2;
List 4 Examples of definition of simple operation result (User defined functions)
function f1(d) {
  return d * d;
}

function f2(d, e) {
  if (d < e) {
    return e;
  } else {
    return d;
  }
}

return f1(D) * f2(D, E);
