Exactly what the title says. Can someone please explain what the Analysis Intervals when Solidworks is doing a Flow Simulation?
The Analysis interval (in travels or in iterations) is the interval of past iterations over which the goals convergence criteria are checked. The analysis interval is reckoned back from the last iteration and indicated by the white bar on the goal plot’s X-axis if you select Show analysis interval in the Goal Plot Settings dialog box. This analysis interval is also used to determine the goal parameter maximum, average, minimum value.
The Analysis interval is by default equal to 0.5 travels. You can change the Analysis interval on the Finish tab of the Calculation Control Options dialog box (expand Goal Convergence to see it).
Note: For this type of questions, it is a good idea to check the SolidWorks Knowledge Base. For instance, searching for "Analysis interval", you'll come across Solution Id S-044714 (direct link https://customerportal.solidworks.com/eservice_enu/start.swe?SWECmd=GotoView&SWEView=SW+KBase+Solution+View+(eService)&SWERF=1&SWEBU=1&SWEApplet0=SW+KBase+Solution+Form+Applet+(eService)&SWERowId0=1-NTSXUV)
You will find more information in the solvingengineeringproblems.pdf manual (typically found in C:\Program Files\SolidWorks 2013\SolidWorks Flow Simulation\lang\english\Docs), for instance page 2-35.
Thanks for the answer Julien. I actually did a search on the forum looking for similar topics but with no luck, that's why I posted.
maybe soemone was looking for the info on travels, not intervals. glad you have what you need.
Hi Greg, totally agree with Julien here, the documentation and KB has all the definitions.
Maybe approaching this from a different direction, from a practical/usage consideration, what is your concern about intervals?
