View Cuts

This command plots the amplitude of the fields computed for each angular cut of the simulation geometry. Several frequencies can be plotted in the same graphic. To plot a graph, the user can select the field component and the frequency. A new graph will be plotted with the button ' Add Series'. In the case that the user has set up a parametrized geometry, it is possible to select the step to visualize the results for.

It is also possible to delete a series that is selected by the user from the list with the 'Remove Series'. The display option also allows changing the color of the series and display points. The buttons ' Import Series' and ' Export Series' are used for importing and exporting the selected series in 'List of Series' to a data file written as a text file.

This panel displays a plot with the results and several options for adding and removing extra series from the plot.

When initially open, the panel will display a default series in the plot that will represent the measurements for a particular component, step, and observation point in a phi or theta cut, against every possible frequency that has been simulated. More series can be added, by selecting the component, step and spherical coordinates in the control panel that appears left side to the plot.

  • Component: the plane wave component to inspect. Select one of the possible values VV, HV, VTotal, HH, VH, HTotal
  • Step: the parametric step to select. These should have been defined prior to the calculation when designing the simulation.
  • Frequency: select a particular frequency.

The user can also draw a polar plot with the same options used in the previous window.
