Values on Surfaces: Special Settings for Reduction
Tips & Tricks
You can display the results on surfaces in a graphic. It may be useful to use the values on surfaces. Depending on the requirements, it is possible to reduce the number of values considerably or adjust them to cover the entire structure. However, it is important to display the values that represent the local extreme values. Also, it is necessary to determine the local extremes. This can be done by right-clicking this function in the Navigator.
Now you can define which values of the surrounding result values are needed to display them as extremes. You can also enter the influence range of the examination of values.
The upper part of the graphic shows result jumps from 50% (2.63 cm²/m) in the range of three elements. This explains the myriad of reinforcement data at the edges of the yellow area. However, if you want to obtain the values of the dark yellow areas, you need to increase the influence range. The result is shown in the lower part of the graphic.
