Discrete Temperature Mapping Example

This task is an example of discrete mapping of temperatures or pressures.

In this task you will learn how to use discrete mapping of temperatures or pressures from a .csv file.
  1. Import the model containing the new mesh in HyperMesh.

    Figure 1.
  2. In the Model Browser, right-click and select Create > Field from the menu.
  3. In the Entity Editor, edit the field's corresponding attributes:
    1. Set Type to discrete.
    2. Set System Type to real.
    3. Set Source to .csv file.
    4. In the File field, locate the .csv results file that contains the temperatures or pressures.
  4. In the Model Browser, right-click on the field entity and select Realize from the menu.
  5. In the Field Realization dialog, define the realization settings:

    Figure 2.
    1. With the Entity selector set to Node, select the nodes you would like to map.
    2. Set Field Type to temperature.
    3. Set Interpolation to proximity (finds the closest nodes) or linear (finds nodes using the inverse distance average).
    4. In the Tolerance field, type the perpendicular projection tolerance. Nodes outside of the 14.0 limit will not be mapped.
    5. Click Apply.
      Temperatures from the .csv file are now mapped to the new mesh.

    6. Click Contour to see the mapping.
