Turbo 2D Contours Panel
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.
contains a list of defined topologies. Select from the list to display the values for the selected topology.
contains the check buttons that set various contour display options.
toggles between filled contours and line contours.
toggles between using scalar field values at nodes and at cell centers for computing the contours.
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).
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
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.
sets the number of contour levels that are displayed.
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.
contains a list from which you can select the scalar field to be contoured.
shows the minimum value of the scalar field. If
Auto Range is off, you can set the minimum by typing a new value.
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.
draws the contours in the active graphics window.
calculates the scalar field and updates the
Max values (even when
Auto Range is off).
