Customize Range... : Assign the color distribution range of contour. Using the function, specific colors for specific ranges can be assigned.
Number of Colors : Assign the number of colors to be included in the contour (select among 6, 12, 18 & 24 colors).
Colors : Assign or control the colors of the contour.
Color Tables : Assign the type of Colors.
Customize Color Table... : Control the colors by zones in the contour.
Reverse Contour : Check on to reverse the sequence of color variation in the contour.
Contour Line : Assign the boundary line color of the contour.
Element Edge : Assign the color of element edges while displaying the contour.
Contour Options : Specify options for contour representation.
Gradient Fill : Display color gradient (shading) in the contour.
Draw Contour Lines : Display color boundaries in the contour.
Draw Contour Line Only
Display only the colored boundaries of the contour.
Mono line : Display the boundaries of the contour in a mono color.
Legend or annotation signifying the ranges of the contour is displayed.
Spacing : Specify the spacing of the legend or annotation.
Coarse Contour(faster)(for large plate or solid model)
Represent a simplified contour for a large model using plate or solid elements in order to reduce the time required to represent a complete contour.
Where plate elements or solid elements along a cutting plane are represented in contour, a three dimensional contour is created. The positive direction of the analysis results is oriented in the z-axis direction of the local element coordinate system.
The option is not concurrently applicable with the Deformed Shape option. Similarly, the option cannot be concurrently applied to the cases where the Hidden option is used to display plate element thicknesses or the Both option is used to represent Top & Bottom member forces (stresses).
Display the deformed shape of the model.
Deformation Scale Factor
Magnify or reduce the size of the displacement graphically displayed in the model window.
Select the type of display for displacement.
Nodal Deform : Display the deformed shape only with nodal displacements.
Real Deform : In addition to node displacements, it calculates and displays detailed strain values along the length direction of elements, including the section between the end nodes.
Real Displacement(Auto-Scale off)
The true deformation of the structure is graphically represented without magnifying or reducing it. This option is typically used for geometric nonlinear analysis reflecting large displacement.
The deformation of the structure is graphically represented relative to the minimum nodal displacement, which is set to "0".
Nodal temperature distribution is presented as numerical values at each node.
The font and color of the numbers can be controlled in Display Option.
Decimal Points : Assign decimal points for the displayed numbers.
Exp. : Express as exponentials.
Min & Max : Display the maximum and minimum values.
Abs Max : Display the absolute maximum value.
Max : Display only the maximum value.
Min : Display only the minimum value.
Limit Scale(%) : Set the screen display limit for temperatures in solid elements relative to the selected maximum or minimum value.
Set Orientation : Display orientation of numerical values.
The default Decimal Points can be controlled in "Preferences". Set Orientation = 0 horizontally displays the numerical values to the right of nodes or elements. The orientation angle represents the counter-clockwise direction, which may be used to enhance the readability of the numbers.
Display various references related to analysis results to the right or left of the working window.
Legend Position : Position of the legend in the display window
Rank Value Type : Format of Legend value and decimal places can be specified.
Dynamically simulate the time dependent temperatures of the solid elements resulting from Heat of Hydration analysis.
Click Apply then click Record to the right of the Animation control board at the bottom of the working window.
Animation Mode : Determine the type of animation for analysis results.
Animate Contour : Option to change the color of the contour representing the transition according to the magnitudes of variation
Repeat Half/Full Cycle : Select the repetition cycle for the dynamic representation of the transition.
Select 'Half Cycle' for the transient shapes of a structure and 'Full Cycle' for dynamically simulating vibration modes or buckling modes.
AVI Options : Enter the options required to produce the animation window.
Bits per Pixel : Number of bits per pixel to create the default window for animation.
Compressor... : Assign the method of compressing image data.
Frames per Half Cycle(3~300) : Number of frames to simulate a 'Half Cycle'.
Frames per Second(5~60) : Number of frames per second to present dynamic simulation.
Construction Stage Option : Select the animation options when the construction stage analysis is performed.
Stage Animation : Animations by construction stages.
Current Stage-Step : Animations by Steps in the current construction stage.
From ~ To : Starting and ending construction stages or steps for animations.
Overlap the undeformed and deformed shapes of the model.
"Mirrored" allows the user to expand the analysis results obtained from a half or quarter model into the results for the full model by reflecting planes.
Half Model Mirroring
Quarter Model Mirroring
Mirror by : Specify the mirror plane (s) by designating a plane and a coordinate in the direction perpendicular to the plane in GCS.
8. Cutting Plane
Graphically display the temperatures of the solid elements along a cutting plane.
Click the button to access the detail setting dialog box to define the cutting plane to produce and view the solid element temperatures resulting from Heat of Hydration analysis.
Named Planes for Cutting
Select a plane from the planes defined and ucs x-y, x-z & y-z planes.
Apply the cutting planes checked with "v".
Draw Solid Outline Only
Outline (highlight) the solid element model using the following options to clearly view the temperature distribution on the cutting plane.
The Outline color is selected in the Color or Print Color tab of the Display Option by the Element Free Face/Edge.
Free Face : Draw the outline of all the faces that are not in contact with other solid elements.
Free Edge : Draw only the outline of the edges that are not in contact with other solid elements.
Ani. Option Show : Show the detailed option for animation.
The Animation Option is used in conjunction with the "Animate" feature in the Type of Display. It allows the creation of stress contour animations for the cut section based on the following options:
Global X Sweep : Creates an animation by sweeping the cut section along the global X-axis and displaying the stress contour on the corresponding plane.
Global Y Sweep : Creates an animation by sweeping the cut section along the global Y-axis and displaying the stress contour on the corresponding plane.
Global Z Sweep : Creates an animation by sweeping the cut section along the global Z-axis and displaying the stress contour on the corresponding plane.
Plane Normal Dir. : Creates an animation by moving the cut section in the direction of the plane's normal vector and displaying the stress contour on the corresponding plane.
Rotating : Creates an animation by rotating the cut section 360 degrees around the x, y, and z axes of the current UCS and displaying the stress contour on the corresponding plane.
IsoSurface searches and displays the planes of equal temperatures resulting from Heat of Hydration analysis within the solid elements.
By clicking the button, the detailed settings dialog box for defining the stress contours generated by heat of hydration analysis will appear as follows.
Define the method of specifying the temperatures to which the planes are subjected.
Relative temperature levels with the maximum and minimum values of 1 and 0 respectively
Value : True magnitudes of temperature values
Click the Add button to enter a numerical value. Multiple entries are possible. And click the Delete button to delete data entries.
Draw Polygon Outline
Polygonal boundaries of the planes of equal temperatures are outlined. The color of boundary lines is selected as the color of Element Edge in the Contour Details dialog box.
Transparent (screen only)
Assign a level of transparency for isosurfaces.
Outline (highlight) the solid element model using the following options to clearly view the temperature distribution on the planes of equal temperatures. The color of the outline is determined from the Color of Display Option or Free Face/Edge of Element under the Print Color Tab.
Draw the outline of all the faces that are not in contact with other solid elements.
Draw only the outline of the edges that are not in contact with other solid elements.
IsoSurface may be used in conjunction with the Animate Option. If one IsoSurface value is entered, the planes of equal temperatures are animated within the range of the temperature value and the maximum temperature value. If two or more temperature values are entered, the range of animation starts from the temperature level that is lowest of all the values to the maximum value.
