### [GiDlist] Viewing results in postprocess

Hi Enrique,

I have a surface current distribution that I can visualize in GiD postprocess. I know that I can plot the graph of that current distribution along a line, at a point, or along a border. I wonder how can I find the current by inputting the x,y,z coordinates of my choice i-e I want to know the current distribution at specific points and I don't want to specify those points by mouse click. Rather, I want to enter the coordinates of those points and see the currents corresponding to those points.

Instead of create graphs from menus, it is more comfortable to create them from the Graphs window (Window-View graphs...)
[cid:image001.jpg at 01CFE954.E51FB9A0]
And to select the start and end points, if the center is an existing node, then you can simply pick it (or enter its id number).
If the mouse cursor is a "+" then GiD is expecting a new coordinate x,y,z but you can swap to pick an existing point with Ctrl-a (or click the contextual menu and select "Join")

If the center is not a node you must calculate its coordinates and enter the x,y,z
And for the end point you can calculate also its x,y,z or you can enter the coordinates relative to the previous point (the center) with this syntax starting by @

@x,y

Or with polar coordinates:

I think that the polar option is what you want. Angle is in degrees, starting from x axe counter-clockwise
e.g. to go 0.2 units in a direction of 45 degrees enter

@0.2,45

Hi,

I have a 2D plot of current density of a circular plate. Now I want to plot the variation of current along a radial line (rho) at some given angle (phi).I know that I can go to

View results/Graphs/Line graph. Now I have two questions regarding this.

i) How can I specify the start and end point of the radial line ? (starting point should be center of circular plate and end point should be on the circumference of the plate)

ii) How can I specify the angle (with respect to horizontal axis) at which the radial line is to be drawn?

Best Regards,

While selecting the point you can swap between select an existing node (and
then click it or enter its integer id),

or select a coordinate (and then click it somehow in screen, like pick point
on element, or enter the x y z)

Off course the x y z is expected to be inside some element of the domain
(with a tolerance), then the results are extrapolated to this point.

To swap the mode, press Ctrol-a (a in lowercase !!) or in the contextual
mouse menu select "Join" or "NoJoin" ). The mouse cursor is different in
each mode.
