Make rectangular plot from the field plot

    • hyhaerong


      Hello! I have created a plot of the jsurf induced at the port using HFSS. What I would like to do is visualize the differences in the jsurf at the port based on variations in a parameter through a rectangular plot. Is it possible?

      I would like to create two graphs on the plot: one for the average value of the jsurf induced at the port and another for the maximum value. The x-axis should represent the parameter, while the y-axis should represent the jsurf values.

      Is there a way to do this?

      Hi Hyhaerong,

      Yes, you can do these kind of operations using fields calculator.

      First, make sure you select Save Fields and Mesh in your parametric setup (in the last Tab>Options) before you run the simulation. 

      Then you can use fields calculator to create your desired field expressions (e.g. Average over a certain surface). You will add these expressions with a name and then you can plot. There is extensive information on the online help for how to access and use fields calculator. You can find it in the Post Processing and Generating Reports (23-411).

      After you created these fields expressions, you can simply right click on the results, Create Fields Report, select Rectangular Plot and then select Calculator Expressions in category. You can find these field expressions listed among other default expressions. Also, you can change the default Primary Sweep to your parameter.

      Hello I really appreciate your response.

      I tried to copy geometrically equivalent meshes from the setup however encounered with the error below

      "Cannot set "Copy mesh" flag because all of variables being varied are geometry variables"


      Can I still make a rectangular plot in this case?
