Probe Points / Extreme (min/max) Locations window
The window Probe Points is used to input any number of arbitrary points
for which the
Probe Points report
shall be generated (second part of Results report). The list of probe points can be extended from the
Result 3D window (Probe) also (by "Collect point").
The Min/Max tab of the window lists interesting locations with extreme values (e.g. points lowest and highest temperatures at surfaces of all
spaces and within the interior of all power sources) thus providing the ability to
select them for further evaluation. This read only listing is automatically provided and updated as soon as any
boundary conditions have been applied to the solution.

Slices X/Y/Z accordingly.
Within a 2D-project the Z-slice is set to 500 mm.
Remark: It is data shown
in the currently marked line transferred - this means, that a double
click onto column or new row will also result in setting the current probe
point to values shown selected by data mark arrow.
The input is confirmed by pressing the button Apply.
The second part of Results
report will show evaluation of temperatures for all points (x, y, z
coordinates) entered in this window. If some point does not belong to the
interior of the construction no temperature values will be shown in the
corresponding line of the report.
Probe points entered are saved to the
evaluation of one probe point is available within
of the application.
Remark: The active tab will be saved upon the window is closed together with the application settings (LastSelectedProbePointsFormTabPageName)
and restored when this window is opened again.
Remark: While "Collect Point" (e.g. out of "Results 3D window") is requested the window will switch to the
"User" tab where the new probe point will be appended.
