Observation Points

This option allows the user to specify the points where the results will be calculated. Please note that this option is available only in "Near Field" and "Doppler" simulations. If the user selects the "Observation Points" option, the following panel will appear:

The user can add near field observation points in different ways. The next options are available:

  • Geometry Types observation points may be inserted as a group that defines different shapes. Select the desired type entity and click on the "Add" button to set its parameters. The available Geometry Types are detailed in the following subsections. Before adding new elements, check that the Name of the new entity to be added is different from the already existing ones; otherwise, an error will be shown.
  • Observation points this section contains several options to work with observation points.
    • The left list contains all the observation shapes that have been added as observation points.
    • The "Edit" button allows editing an observation points shape selected on the left list.
    • The "Delete" button allows removing the observation entities selected on the left list.
    • Use the "Delete All" button to remove all the observation points shapes on the left list.
    • The "Export as Text" button allows saving all the generated observation points. Every point is defined in a different line by its X, Y and Z coordinates.
    • The "Import File" button allows the user to add a previously saved observation points file. Only .obs files are supported, which are the internal format generated by the application.
    • The "Export File" button allows the user to save the current observation points configuration in a new file. It must be saved as .obs file, which is the internal format generated by the application.
  • Hide observation points this option controls whether the observation points are shown in the geometry panel.
