Field Visualization


For the field calculation inside a 3D FEM element most settings and the handling is the same as for the "normal" field calculation with MM / BCMM and 2D FEM. The main difference is, that 3D vector plots of the fields are generated for the whole volume of the structure instead of plots along certain planes inside the element. These plots have the extension *.off and can be visualized with the NTL3D-Viewer (load/show geomview off-files). Also the fields can be calculated in every element simulated with 3D FEM and not only elements involving step discontinuities and planar elements. The naming convention of the plot files is the same as for 2D field plots, except the extension is now *.off instead of *.ipl.
