Fringe Display Type
Use the Fringe display type to display your results as a fringe plot, which is a series of filled color regions on the location you select. Each region is a different color, representing a different range of values for the quantity you are viewing.
You can use fringes to determine whether certain results are reasonable. For example, you can look at the fringe plot of maximum principal or von Mises stress for static analyses, or flux magnitude for thermal analyses.
You can also create a contour display using the Fringe display type. To get a better idea of what a fringe plot looks like, you can review an example. Also, before defining a fringe display, be sure to read the information in Tips for Fringe Displays.
When you select Fringe from the Display Type drop-down list, the options available on the Display Options tab become specific to fringe plot result window displays.
The Display Options tab displays some or all of these items depending on the design study and the selections you make on the Quantity tab and the Display Options tab:
Continuous Tone—Display fringes in continuous tones that transition smoothly between fringes. If you do not select this item, fringes display in discrete colors. A fringe with Continuous Tone selected cannot be exported as a VRML file.
Averaged—Display quantities as values averaged at locations where two elements in your model meet. If you clear the check box, the results display as unaveraged values. In FEM mode, this option becomes available only when you load results from an .xdb NASTRAN file.
In the Native Thermal mode, the Averaged check box is only available for flux and temperature gradient. You can clear the check box only for flux and temperature gradient to display the result as unaveraged values.
In the Native Structure mode, use the configuration option sim_pp_struct_avg_res to display averaged results. By default, results are not averaged.
Legend Levels—Set the number of levels to display on the model for a fringe window. The minimum value is 2, and the maximum is 16. The default is 9 levels.
Contour—Display your model with contour lines or isosurfaces. Set to display or not display contour labels. You cannot select both Continuous Tone and Contour.
Deformed—Display your model in its deformed state. Additionally, you can display an undeformed wireframe or transparent version of the model superimposed over the deformed model.
Show Element Edges—Display the edges of the elements in your model when you display the results.
Show Loads—Display the load icons in your model when you display the results.
Show Constraints—Display the constraint icons in your model when you display the results.
Show Bonding Elements—Display the bonding elements in your model when you display the results
Animate—Animate the display of your results in the result window. You can select Auto Start, repeat, reverse, and alternate option buttons, and the number of frames in the animation. This option is unavailable for fatigue results and linearized stresses.
Select Home > Dynamic Query to show the value of the result window's quantity at locations you select.
