The
Display/PDF Tables/Curves.. menu item opens the
PDF Table panel.
PDF Table Panel
You can dispaly 2D plots and 3D surfaces showing the variation of species mole fraction, density, or temperature with the mean mixture fraction, mixture fraction variance, or enthalpy. See Section
15.12.3 for details about the items below.
Controls
PDF Data Type
describes the system that you are displaying.
Plot Variable
contains a drop-down list from which you can select temperature, density, or species fraction as the variable to be plotted.
Scalar Dissipation
specifies the value of the
Scalar Dissipation which is available for multiple flamelets only.
Plot Type
gives you the choice of plotting a 3D surface or a slice of a 3D surface.
3D Surface
displays a 3D plot of the variation of species mole fraction, density, or temperature with the mean mixture fraction, mixture fraction variance, or enthalpy.
2D Curve on 3D Surface
consists of a 2D curve which is a slice of a 3D surface.
Options
contains options specific to the display of 3D surfaces or 2D curves on 3D surfaces.
Draw Numbers Box
enabling this option displays a wireframe box with the numerical limits in each coordinate direction. This option is available only when
3D Surface is selected.
Write To File
specifies whether you want to write the plot data to a file. This option is available only when
2D Curve on 3D Surface is selected. The
Plot button changes to a
Write button when this option is enabled.
Surface Parameters
contains settings where discrete independent variables are held constant and where curve parameters are defined.
Constant Value of
specifies the discrete independent variable to be held constant in the lookup table. The choices are
Scaled Heat Loss/Gain,
Mean Mixture Fraction, or
Scaled Variance. For a two-mixture-fraction case, the
Scaled Heat Loss/Gain is the only available option.
Slice by
allows you to select whether the 3D array of data points available in the look-up table will be sliced by
Index or
Value.
Index/Value
contains index/values and their ranges.
Index/Value
allows you to specify the discretization index or numerical value of the variable that is being held constant.
Min/Max
are the range of integer values that you are allowed to choose from or display.
Adiabatic
is the enthalpy slice index corresponding to the adiabatic case for which the enthalpy (
Scaled Heat Loss/Gain) is held constant.
Curve Parameters
allows you to specify the
X-Axis Function against which the plot variable will be displayed when
2D Curve on 3D Surface is selected.
X-Axis Function
allows you to select
Mean Mixture Fraction or
Scaled Variance against which the plot variable will be displayed.
Constant Value of Scaled Variance/Mean Mixture Fraction
allows you to specify the type of discretization for the variable that is being held constant.
Slice by
allows you to select whether the 3D array of data points available in the look-up table will be sliced by
Index or
Value.
Index/Value
contains index/values and their ranges.
Index#/Value
allows you to specify the discretization index or numerical value of the variable that is being held constant for the curve parameters.
Min/Max
are the range of integer values that you are allowed to choose from or display.
Display
displays the plot variable of the 3D surface.
Plot
plots the plot variable for the 2D curve on 3D surface.
Write
opens the
Select File dialog box where you will specify a name for the file containing plot data. This button appears when
Write To File is enabled for the
2D Curve on 3D Surface plot type.
