EZXY Plotter

Integrated Plotting Utility

EZXY®, the plotter for CRTech's Thermal Desktop® and SINDA/FLUINT, allows the user to produce X-Y plots of data contained in either SINDA/FLUINT Compressed Solution Results (CSR) folders, SAVE files, or in databases produced by RadCAD®. Formatted text files may also be used as input files.

Charts can be created and saved as individual plot files or as part of a plot set, which is a group of charts which can be refreshed and exported as a group. The information displayed in each chart is controlled by a collection of associated input files. Each plot file may use multiple input files, allowing results to be combined onto a single chart (e.g. to compare different runs, compare test data with predictions. or map heating rates to temperature results). Upon reopening a saved chart, the chart can be updated through the regenerate or refresh commands to reflect any changes that have been made to the associated input files since the chart was last saved.

Charts can be exported as graphic files or the data itself can be exported as text files such as comma- or tab-separated files. When using plot sets, several plots can be exported simultaneously.

Introduction to Two-phase Flow

September 24, 2-3pm MDT

This webinar introduces basic concepts in two-phase flow modeling including quality, void fraction, flow regimes, slip flow, pressure drops and accelerations, and heat transfer.

No knowledge of CRTech software is required. However, references to the corresponding FloCAD features will be made to assist users of that product.

Introductory FloCAD Training

Class times: September 5, 10, and 12, 2019, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm MDT daily
Cost: no charge (attendees must have an active support contract)

CRTech will be hosting introductory training for FloCAD (Flow Modeling in Thermal Desktop). This is our standard FloCAD class previously hosted in a classroom environment and now restructured for an online teaching environment.

The class will introduce single-phase fluid modeling concepts and how to build fluid models within the FloCAD work environment. Topics covered include an introduction to fluid modeling components, geometric versus non-geometric modeling options, working with FloCAD Pipes, solution control, and an introduction to path and pipe libraries.

The class will be broken into three two- to three-hour sessions held over a 3 day period. The format will be online lecture and demonstration with opportunities to ask questions. Hands-on lab work will be provided to students to work on after each session. To gain the most from this class, students are encouraged to attend all three sessions.

Prerequisites: Attendees must have basic working knowledge of Thermal Desktop as many of its base features will not be covered in this class but their usage is required for FloCAD.

Eligibility Requirement: This class is a service to our customers. All attendees must have an active support contract. If you are unsure of your support status, please contact CRTech.
