In this third tutorial, we introduce the basics of operating with the EnSight Calculator and how to being to query your dataset.
The real engineering power of EnSight comes from its ability to analyze your results. This in part comes from the ability to further analyze the results, and calculate new variables within EnSight. Items like calculating the maximum temperature on a clip plane, or an area weighted average value, or flow rate through an arbitrary location. These items can all be achieved through the use of calculator in EnSight. This tutorial illustrates how to get going with the calculator, and how to begin to extract out key information from your analysis (like distribution of average temperature as a function of height in the device).
Closely related to the calculator, is the concept of queries. Queries are essentially a 2 column register of paired values which you can graph (plot). Once you have calculated values (like min or spatial mean), you quickly want to graph those values as a function of geometric change (sweeping through height of the domain) or over time (a temporal query). Thus, this tutorial introduces you to the queries as a related capability to analyze and quantify the results of the simulation.
