Compare HV Version Results

Result comparison HV versions tab ensures that HyperView does not deprecate any result information after post-processing.

  • Any combination of results from different data types, simulation and subcases are exported for each HyperView version and compared.
  • Any difference would trigger the problem and would be reported.
Different levels of verification and validation include:
  • Verification of the result file across two versions of HyperView (with the same solver version results).
  1. Click the Result tab then the Result comparison HV versions tab.

    Figure 1.
  2. From the Solver drop-down menu, select a solver whose results are to be compared.
    Options include:
    • Abaqus
    • ANSYS
    • CFD-Ensight
    • FEMZIP
    • LS-DYNA
    • MADYMO
    • Marc-t16
    • Nastran
    • Radioss
    • OptiStruct
    • UNV
    • Hyper3D
  3. Select a Tolerance method then input the value used to set the tolerance for the difference in values between the reference and current version result files during comparison.
    Option Description
    Default 1e-6 for Scalar, Tensor, and Vector, if not individually chosen.
    Scalar Enter values if different for the scalar result type.
    Vector Enter values if different for the vector result type.
    Tensor Enter values if different for the tensor result type.
    User Defined Click Tolerance and set the individual tolerance value for all data types.
  4. Click Apply to set new values.
  5. Choose between a PowerPoint or HTML report of the result value comparison.
    This returns a detailed report containing one slide per data type across load cases.
    In case of a failure, one slide per load case for each datatype is published so that it is easy to identify the load case that contains a difference in values.
  6. Select the current and reference solver version.
  7. Select the HyperView model file.
  8. Select the HyperView result file.
  9. Select an output directory.
  10. Click Apply to store your results.
  11. Select any combination of subcases, simulations, and result types from the populated areas.
    Click All to select all items listed.
  12. Click Apply to generate data to compare the results of the chosen combination.
    The Compare result section displays the current file and the corresponding reference file. Click Report to display the diff report detailing the differences between files.
