General Solver Settings

General solver settings are available that relate to geometry tests and data storage precision.

On the Solve/Run tab, in the Solution settings group, click the  Solver settings icon.

Geometry Tests

Activate normal geometry checking

This option allows geometry elements in the model to be analysed for typical user errors. These types of errors are typical as result of geometry hat have not been unioned.

The following checks are performed:
  • Verify that connecting surfaces have identical segmentation along a common edge.
  • Verify that connection points coincide.
Activate mesh element size checking
This option activates the verification of the mesh size in relation to the frequency.
Export to the Feko *.out file
This option allows the geometry data of the segments and surface elements to be written to the .out file.

Data Storage Precision

Single precision
This option forces certain memory-critical arrays to be stored in single precision. Single precision is the recommended option.
Double precision
This option forces certain memory-critical arrays to be stored in double precision. Double precision is to be used when an error or warning message is displayed by the Solver suggesting that double precision is used. This might happen for instance at very low frequencies where increased accuracy is required.

Thermal Analysis

Export files for thermal analysis (*.epl, *.nas, *.map)
This option allows the export of files for thermal analysis. The EM losses are exported to the element power loss (.epl) file and the geometry info is exported to a NASTRAN (.nas) file and label mapping (.map) file.
