Perform a Hotspot Search with Default Criteria

Perform a basic hotspot search with the default criteria calculated in the current simulation and subcase.

  1. From the Query tools, click the Hotspot tool.

    Figure 1.
    The Hotspot Finder guide bar is displayed.

    Figure 2.
  2. From the guide bar, click to perform a search. The hotspots will be shown with notes in modeling area attached to the hotspots.
    This search runs with default criteria if you have never run any hotspot search before or if you have not changed the plotted result type, Loadcase and simulation step since the last search.

    Default search criteria searches for the hotspots through all of the displayed entities, with a threshold for more than 80% of the legend max value, separation between hotspots as 10% of the length of the biggest diagonal in the model bounding box, and filtering out the top five values.
