 You can also select a curve from the Plot Browser and delete it by pressing the Delete keyboard key.
 Extreme Curve

 After plotting curves, rightclick in the Plot Browser and select Extreme Curves from the contextsensitive menu.

 Extreme Curve Type menu
 If Maximum is selected, the Top N curves are displayed based on the value set in the Display Top/Bottom N Curves field.
 If Minimum is selected, the bottom N curves are displayed based on the value set in the Display Top/Bottom N Curves field.
 Search in Trimmed X Range
 Selected by default.
 Trim X Range by
 Choose between Value or Index. For both options, enter values in the Start Value or Index and End Value or Index fields.
 Display Extreme Curves
 Choose between Trimmed or
Original.
 Trimmed
 The plotted extreme curve is trimmed by the userdefined range.
 Original
 Keeps the total curve as an extreme curve.
 Consider Visible Curves Only
 Ignores hidden curves in the extreme curve math.
 Curve Correlation
 Outputs a correlation metric in the form of notes on the plot using correlation algorithms. These functions are used to calculate a correlation metric between test and CAE data. SpragueGeers Combined Metric (SGCM) and Weighted Integrated Factor (WIFac) are supported.

 SpragueGeers
 The SpragueGeers metric is a simple integral comparison metric that includes both magnitude and phase errors, which are calculated independently and then combined to give a comprehensive error. The error calculation can be biased towards either the measured time history (test) or the computed (CAE) time history, with the former being the most common.
 Weighted Integrated Factor
 The Weighted Integrated Factor method (WIFac) is used in the auto industry for crash simulations. This metric is associative and calculates the agreement between two signals. This is advantageous in situations where the experimental data is known to have significant error. WIFac is weighted by the absolute maximum of the function values. This weighting has the effect of scaling local differences to increase the effect of errors at high magnitude function values.
 From the Curve Correlation dialog, you can leave the default settings or edit the options as needed. Click Plot to display notes with the correlation metrics in the plot window.

 Reference Curve
 Use the file browser to select reference curves or enter enter a list of ID’s (for example, 14).
 Correlation Curve IDs
 Enter an individual ID or a list of IDs (for example, 57).
 Correlation Type
 Supported methods include SGCM and WIFac.

 Add Stackmath Operation
 Create a math stack on a curve. From the dialog, use the filter bar, , to filter the math functions to apply to a curve. Once a math operation is applied to a curve, the curve is redrawn per the math function without creating any duplicate curves. The Name/Value entity editor in the dialog displays the parameters for the math function, which you can edit as needed. The parameters displayed are based on the selected math function.

 Apply
 Adds an operation to the curve and keeps the dialog open for the next math operation to apply.
 OK
 Adds the selected math function to the curve and closes the dialog.
 Cancel
 Closes the dialog.
 Stackmath advantages include:
 Easytouse and intuitive workflow through the Plot Browser to add and remove math operations as a stack.
 Avoids editing complicated math functions.
 Provides highperformance math calculations.
 For the Stackmath Operations trim, cut, bridge,
and replace, you can change the start and endvalues by
dragging the vertical range slider bars in the plot.Note: If you move the sliders and then switch the active window or page and the curve selection in the browser gets lost, the previously selected curves are still modified by the math operation.
 Single Curve Math
 Performs a math functions on a single curve, which results in the creation of a new curve.
 Included in the name of the new curve is the name of the math function. For example, if you choose to perform the Derivative function on curve 1 and there were currently three curves in the session, the new curve would be named c4:DerivativeLower Torso. The new curve is also added to the Curve list on the Define Curves panel.
 Multiple Curve Math
 Performs math functions on multiple curves, which results in the creation of a new curve. The name of the math function is also included in the name of a new curve. For example, c7:Resultant.
 You can choose to get the sum or resultant of multiple curves.
If you have the Vehicle Safety Tools loaded, the Filter and Injury menu options are
also included on the context sensitive menu. Please see the Vehicle Safety Tools topic for more
information.
Note: When in Toggle Sync Mode, , the Select All and Select All
in Page options are unavailable.
Vector Context Menu
 Select All
 Selects all vectors displayed in the tree.
 Select All in Page
 Selects all vectors displayed on the page.
 Select All in Window
 Selects all vectors displayed in the window.
Note: When in Toggle Sync Mode, , this menu is disabled.
You can also add your own options to the context sensitive menu using the *BrowserContextMenuItem() preference file command.
