32.11.3 Turbo/2D Contours...

The Turbo/2D Contours... menu item opens the Turbo 2D Contours panel.



Turbo 2D Contours Panel


The Turbo 2D Contours panel allows you display turbomachinery-specific contours of variables on surfaces of constant pitchwise, spanwise, or meridional coordinates, projected onto a plane. See Section  28.9.4 for details.

Controls

Turbo Topology   contains a list of defined topologies. Select from the list to display the values for the selected topology.

Options   contains the check buttons that set various contour display options.
Filled   toggles between filled contours and line contours.

Node Values   toggles between using scalar field values at nodes and at cell centers for computing the contours.

Global Range   toggles between basing the minimum and maximum values on the range of values on the selected surfaces (off), and basing them on the range of values in the entire domain (on, the default).

Auto Range   toggles between automatic and manual setting of the contour range. Any time you change the Contours of selection, Auto Range is reset to on.

Clip to Range   determines whether or not values outside the prescribed Min/ Max range are contoured when using Filled contours. If selected, values outside the range will not be contoured. If not selected, values below the Min value will be colored with the lowest color on the color scale, and values above the Max value will be colored with the highest color on the color scale. See Section  28.1.2 for details.

Levels   sets the number of contour levels that are displayed.

Setup   indicates the ID number of the contour setup. For frequently used combinations of contour fields and options, you can store the information needed to generate the contour plot by specifying a Setup number and setting up the desired information in the panel. See Section  28.1.2 for details.

Contours of   contains a list from which you can select the scalar field to be contoured.

Min   shows the minimum value of the scalar field. If Auto Range is off, you can set the minimum by typing a new value.

Max   shows the maximum value of the scalar field. If Auto Range is off, you can set the maximum by typing a new value.

Normalised Spanwise Coordinates (0 to 1)   allows you to specify the coordinate for the spanwise surface you want to create.

Display   draws the contours in the active graphics window.

Compute   calculates the scalar field and updates the Min and Max values (even when Auto Range is off).
