Results & Evaluation

AnTherm provides variety of ways to show computational results and execute evaluations. It provides results as textual reports and graphical evaluations (visualization).

Reports

Reports provide computational results as textual, printable output. All reports can be

  • viewed on the screen,
  • saved as PDF, XLSX, DOCX or image file for further processing,
  • printed on the printer
    and
  • searched for specific words and phrases.

Following reports are available and can be generated via the Main menu (View) of the program:

Data Entry Report detailed listing of entered data
Modelling Report a summarizing report for the modelled construction, used materials, spaces, surface properties and power sources
Coupling Coeff. Report Output of the calculated matrix of Thermal Coupling Coefficients (the conductance matrix) along with calculation precision indicators.
Results Report Output of surface temperatures under defined boundary conditions at coldest surface points of each space, along with their location (coordinates) and respective temperature factors fRsi.

The 2nd part of this report outputs temperature values at given probe points under defined boundary conditions.
If there is vapour solution also, values of vapour saturation pressure and partial pressure are also shown.

Each output form contains the name and address of the user displayed at the top. The date of the output creation along with the program information are also shown. Please refer to license terms and conditions of use regarding these output contents. Just below the heading the file name (the project file) is shown followed by the user chosen short project description. Specific calculation and simulation results are displayed below this general information.

Graphical Evaluations (Visualization)

Graphical evaluations are used to visualize simulation results as two- and three-dimensional picture renderings. The choice of primary function provides following visualizations:

Visualizations can be easily adjusted to user's needs and according to specific requirements:

At any time the graphical display can be copied to the clipboard for further transfer to other applications (for example to create compound reports).
Visualizations can also be saved (exported) to picture files (PNG, GIF, JPG, TIFF, ...) or to 3-D scene files (VRML, OOGL, IV, ...) for further processing.

Following visualizations can be shown in Results 3D window :

Isotherms can be coloured by applying the colour table which assigns colours to temperature values. The assignment of isolines to values of temperature can be controlled by user input.

The representation can be adjusted by choosing different colour table which assigns colour to intervals of the temperature values.
