Bird’s-Eye View 2D Visualization Functions

The functions for visualizing the 2D calculation results in Bird’s-eye view are explained.

Use [Bird’s Eye 2D Post-processing Window] for bird’s eye view 2D visualization of simulation result as explained below.

[Open new 2D Bird’s Eye Post-processing Window]

Either of the following actions opens a new [Bird’s-Eye Post-Processing Window].

Menu bar: [Calculation Results] (R) –> [Open New Bird’s Eye 2D Post-processing Window]

Operation Toolbar: post2dbirdeye-window-icon

When you select [Open new 2D Bird’s Eye Post-processing Window], the new [Bird’s-Eye 2D Post-processing Window] (Figure 376) will open.

Settings on the elements shown in the [Object Browser] of [Bird’s Eye 2D Post-processing Window] can be edited mainly from [Draw] menu. For operations on [Axes], refer to [Axes].

[Grid Shape] (G)

Description: Sets the grid shape settings.

When you select [Grid Shape], the [Grid Shape Setting] dialog (Figure 378) will open. Set it and click on [OK]. Figure 379 shows examples of the display when the setting is for [Outline] and [All] respectively.

[Contours (node)] (C)

Description: Sets the contour settings for calculation results defined at grid nodes.

When you select [Contour], the [Contour Setting] dialog (Figure 380) will open. Set it and click on [OK].

When you click on [Region Setting] button, [Region Setting] dialog (Figure 381 or Figure 382) will open.

When you click on [Color Bar Setting] button, [Color Legend Setting] dialog (Figure 383) will open.

Please refer to [Color Setting] about the dialog that is shown when you select [Custom] as [Colormap] and click on [Setting] button.

Figure 384 shows an example of displayed contours for each [Display Setting] setting.

With iRIC 3.0, it is now possible to visualize contours for multiple calculation results at the same time. To visualize multiple contours, please check on the check boxes for multiple items in the object browser.

[Contour (Cell center)] (L)

Description: Sets the contour settings for calculation Results defined at cell centers.

When you select [Contour], the [Contour Setting] dialog (Figure 385) will open. Set it and click on [OK].

When you click on [Region Setting] button, [Region Setting] dialog (Figure 386 or Figure 387) will open.

When you click on [Color Bar Setting] button, [Color Legend Setting] dialog (Figure 388) will open.

Please refer to [Color Setting] about the dialog that is shown when you select [Custom] as [Colormap] and click on [Setting] button.

Figure 389 shows an example of displayed contours for each [Display Setting] setting.

It is possible to visualize contours for multiple calculation results at the same time. To visualize multiple contours, please check on the check boxes for multiple items in the object browser.
