9.3 Viewing results

Computing results

To compute the analysis, within the Analyses card, you can either:

  1. Click on the small calculator on the right of the analysis, or
  2. Right-click on the analysis itself and select Compute (as shown in the next figure).

When the analysis is finished, the results will appear in the “Results” tab of the Inputs/Results card. Switch this card to “Results” to review the results.

Computing an analysis

Once a new analysis is completed, a small notification bubble will appear next the Results tab displaying the number of new analyses, and the computed analyses can then be viewed in the Results tab. The results of each analysis are divided into three categories according to the type of output: Blocked Forces, Component-based TPA, and Operational Spectra.

To visualize the results, right click on the data in the Results card and select Plot or Waterfall plot. If several results are selected, they will be plotted together. Additionally, if a plot already exists, one can drag and drop a new analysis onto the plot in the Graphs card to add the data to the current plot.

Plotting the results and inputs

As described in 4.3 Data selection, you can control the data being plotted by hovering over the channel and block names in the title and scrolling with the scrollbar. Multiple channels/blocks can also be selected from the drop-down menu using CTRL or SHIFT while clicking, and the type of averaging is set below the drop-down menu of channel/block names.

Additional plot settings are available by right clicking on the curve in the graph to set the spectrum type (e.g. Magnitude, Phase, Real, Imaginary) and spectrum options (e.g. amplitude type, weighting, averaging).

In the Analyze card it is also possible to plot input datasets, either by drag and drop or from the context menu upon the data entries.

To change color of the curve, click on the small colored square next to the desired dataset in the Results card. For the other plot style options, see 4.2 Setting the plot style and spectrum options.

Managing the results

For large projects with several operation runs and/or TPA computations, the results section can quickly become unwieldy. To manage these large datasets, you can filter the data on the Analysis parameters or data Type, as shown in the following figure. In addition, it is also possible to select other parameters such as segment, size, range, etc. These parameters can be found right clicking on “Name” and selecting “Show column chooser”. A table will appear and all the parameters can be selected or deselected. As shown in the figure, you can also search for specific results in the search bar at the top.

Filtering analysis results

Organizing and analyzing the results

Pages creation

For a better results visualization, it is possible to organize them into pages. Empty pages can be added in the graphs card by clicking on the (+) button. The pages created will appear on the top left side of the graphs card. To rename a page, right click on the page itself and select “Rename”, then type the correct name.

Auralization

In the Analyze tab it is possible to auralize blocked forces and TPA syntheses that have been converted to the time-domain. The instructions are the same for playing back channels in the Operational Data card and can be found in 6.3 Reviewing operational data.

Exporting the results

All analysis results can be exported to both .MAT and .ATFX format. To export the data, right click on a dataset in the Results card and select Export. If multiple datasets are simultaneously selected (using CTRL or SHIFT + click), all datasets will be exported in a single file.
