ELMER Post Editing

Post by Matthew »

Hi all,

I have few questions to ask regarding the ELMER Post Processing:

1) I want to plot absolute displacement but I want to change the plot name from Displacement_abs to something like "Total Displacement"? Can ELMER do this? If yes, please teach me.

2) How can I change the color scale default color scheme?

Thank you very much!

Hi

I think you can use the tcl/tk commands to do some of these things. However, I would also warmly recommend saving results in Paraview format and then creating a journal file of your session and running that from command-line to get automated visualization scripts.

Hi Peter,

Sorry, I didn't quite get what you mean....

Can you explain in simpler words?

Hi,

change the file extension of the "Post File" to .vtu (in the Simulation section of the sif file, Model->Setup in ElmerGUI) and open the vtu file with the postprocessor ParaView (see www.paraview.org). It has more features and a more intuitive GUI than ElmerPost, it is under continuous development and has a very active mailing list.

HTH,

Matthias

Hi all,

I am currently using ELMER Postprocessor (VTK). How can I plot a surface plot of absolute displacement? Because in the Control -> Surface field, there are only displacement in x, y and z directions but no absolute displacement. Can anyone help me please?
