Result Options—Creo Simulation Live

Simulation results appear as a fringe plot on the model in the graphics window. The legend displays the variation of the result quantity between the minimum and maximum values. The options in the Live Simulation Display Options dialog box control how results appear. There are two buttons in this dialog box for switching between the following display options:

• Result Display Options—Contains the following options:

◦ Current Result Type—Selects the type of result quantity that appears for a simulation study. When you change the selected result type, the results that appear in the graphics window change instantly. The result types available depend on the active simulation study. The following result types are available:

Result Type | Description |

Von Mises Stress | A combination of all stress components. |

Deformation | Deformation. |

X Normal Stress | Normal stress along the X-axis. |

Y Normal Stress | Normal stress along the Y-axis. |

Z Normal Stress | Normal stress along the Z- axis. |

XY Shear Stress | Shear stress acting in the Y- direction on the plane whose outward normal is parallel to the X- axis. |

YZ Shear Stress | Shear stress acting in the Z- direction on the plane whose outward normal is parallel to the Y axis. |

XZ Shear Stress | Shear stress acting in the Z- direction on the plane whose outward normal is parallel to the X axis. |

Maximum Principal Stress | Maximum principal stress. |

Middle Principal Stress | The principal stress that has a numerical value between maximum principal and minimum principal. |

Minimum Principal Stress | Minimum principal stress. |

Local Reaction Force | Force acting in the direction opposite to the applied force. |

Reaction Resultant | The sum of all the different forces acting on the model. |

◦ Rendering Method—Selects the result rendering method used to generate the result image in the graphics window:

▪ Surface—Shows you the surface of the model.

▪ Composite—View activity inside the model.

▪ Inverse Surface—See behind the first surface encountered in the model from a specific viewpoint. This is referred to as surface skipping. This technique gives you a better understanding of the underlying structure of complicated models.

▪ Iso-Surface—Visualize the surfaces that would form when you specify a value.

▪ Max Value—Displays the maximum value of a quantity found along a line of sight drawn from your eye to the back of the model. This method is useful when trying to find maxima in the model that might be otherwise obscured.

▪ Min Value—Displays the minimum value found along a line of sight drawn from your eye to the back of the model.

◦ Result Component—Choose the vector component of the result that you want to display:

▪ X—X- component of result quantity.

▪ Y—Y- component of result quantity.

▪ Z—Z- component of result quantity.

▪ SUM—The resultant value of the result quantity.

◦ Units—Selects the units to use when displaying the result quantity.

◦ Show Min/Max—Highlights the minimum and maximum values of the result quantity in the results display.

• Deformation Options—Shows you how the model deforms when subject to loads and constraints. This screen contains the following options:

◦ —Switches to displaying the deformation result and animates it.

◦ —Stops animation of the deformed result.

◦ —Toggles the animation of the color bands in deformation results display. When on, the bands change throughout the deformation, from all blue initially, to their final values at the peak displacement. When off, the final bands are maintained throughout the deformation.

◦ Speed—Varies the speed of the animation.

◦ Scale—Varies the scale of the animation.

◦ True deformations—Sets true deformation. The deformation is not scaled. When you select this check box the animation appears without scaling. In this case the value of scale does not have any effect on the displayed deformation.
