Postprocessing - how to set contour levels

Postprocessing - how to set contour levels

Postprocessing - how to set contour levels

(OP)
Hi guys,

Please help. I want all elements with stress higher than 150MPa to be displayed in red.

I go to View Options > PostProcessing > Contur/Criteria Levels.

In Level Mode I go to User Defined.
In Contour Palette I go to User Palette.
#of Levels I like to keep 16.
I want to keep original Max and Min thus I click on Auto Max Min.

I go to Set Levels...
I see max level is only 6 even tough I have selected 16.
Anyway I type in Level: 2
Value: 150
Click No Magenta

OK. Apply.

I stil have Magenta, I have only 6 levels, I cant see my level at 150 units on the legend. All values seems automatic.

What I'm missing?

Rgds,

RE: Postprocessing - how to set contour levels

Dear Wnuczko,
Go to VIEW options (press F6 key) and set the MAX Threshold (I am running the current version of FEMAP V11.2.2):



Next plot the result, if I set the maximum level at 85, then in red i will see values above 85:



Best regards,
Blas.

Dear Blas,

And can you display you max stress value on top of the contour legend as well? See attached.

Indeed I want to color all elements above treshold to red, but I want to keep my max stress value there on top. Then it is clear what is the max, and what is above the limit I have set.

I know it is a sily question but presentation of results is important and I don't feel comfortable when Max stress is not displayed...

Best regards, M.

Solved.

For anyone interested. You go to F6>PostProcessing>Contour/Criteria Levels>3.User Defined

then Click Auto Max Min to keep those values
then Go to Set Levels and under level 2 type desired threshold.

Apply. Done!
