Calculation Diagram

Glossary Term

A calculation diagram shows the distribution of a specific result during the calculation.

A typical application case is the graphical display of the convergence curve in an iterative calculation.

It is possible to freely define the layout of the vertical and horizontal axis of the calculation diagram. In this way, you can graphically evaluate the deformation of a particular node during the calculation, for example.

Entering in RFEM and RSTAB

The 'Calculation Diagrams' tab in the 'Calculation Parameters' dialog box is available in RFEM and RSTAB under 'Calculation' → 'Calculation Parameters'. You can define several calculation diagrams here.
