Introduction

After a simulation, the charts screen will list all available simulation outputs. Simulation outputs are selected in the simulation screen, by editing the outputs.

Depending on the type of simulation that has been run, different charts are available. A chart is created by selecting outputs in the list. The player will attempt to create a chart which suites the selected output, but if you want a specific chart you can select the chart type from the menu.

<h2>Results</h2> Lists all available simulation outputs. When you select an output in the list, a chart is automatically created for you. If you want a specific type of chart, either click the corresponding button in the menu or right-click and select the chart from the menu that appears.

<h3>Search</h3> The search box allows you to filter out outputs based on the information entered below. * Name - Search for an output whos name contains the text entered in this field. * Index - Display outputs for a specific index/contaminant. * Type - Select a specific type of output.

<h2>Charts</h2> When you select an output in the Results list, a chart will automatically be created which is titled “Quickview”. This chart is replaced as soon as you select other outputs in the list. To retain the chart, you must create a chart using the menu buttons.

Each chart is given a page identified by the title of the chart. To change the properties of the chart, you can either use the buttons beneath in the Plot box, or right-click the chart and select Edit from the menu.

<h3>Types of charts</h3> <a name=“timechart”/> * Time chart - A time chart will plot the selected outputs against time. When you plot a probabilistic output, by default the mean value is displayed. To select other statistics you must edit the chart.

<a name=“scatterchart”/> * Scatter chart - The scatter chart plots one or more outputs against another output. For deterministic simulations, values for all time points are plotted. For probabilistic simulations, values for a given time point are plotted. For more settings, edit the chart.

<a name=“histogram”/> * Histogram - Displays a histogram for the selected outputs at a given time point. To control the number of bins and other settings, edit the chart.

<a name=“tornadochart”/> * Tornado - The tornado chart is used for sensitivity analysis. It displays the impact of uncertain parameters on one output by displaying correlation coefficients in a horizontal bar diagram. You can select which sensitivity indices to display from the Plot box below. To specify which parameters to include, as well as other settings, edit the chart.

<h2>Exporting data</h2> You can export data for a given chart either to an Excel file. Right-click the chart and select Export data….
