Xview permits, with a powerful and
intuitive user interface, to easily generate or import a 3D geometry, and to
associate experimental data to the geometry nodes. The experimental data
can then be visualised in both 2D and 2D window with a variety of formats, and
animation can also be performed. A Typical application is the Operative
Deformation, since the true structural deflections and vibrations can be easily
visualised in 3D .
Availability of a library of CAD elements (including
various kind of edges and panels) that permit a fast and easy construction of
Possibility to create and manipulate Groups of
elements in order to permit a more easy model management.
Availability of different tools for the model
manipulation, including the basic operation for copying, translate and rotate
elements, as well as more advanced tools such as Extrusion, generation of
revolution surface and others.
Import of Finite element models. It is possible to
choose among the nodes of the Finite Element model these ones for which the
experimental data are available, and interpolation routine will permit to
interpolate the data on all the other nodes of the model.
Import of experimental time histories and FFT in
standard ASCII format as well as universal file.
Interfaces with other file format for both geometries
and data can be easily developed on user request.
Easy association of experimental data with nodes. The
user can simply click on the desired node and select the experimental data
among the available ones.
Availability of different data representation such as
Colour plots, Vector plots, and deformation plots.
3D Animation of the results.
2D Graphics for plotting time histories and FFT.
Tool for data manipulation (Integration, Derivative,
FFT , Inverse FFT, and data truncation).
Export of deformation data in ASCII format
3D Windows realised with OpenGL in order to ensure
high quality and the support of 3D accelerating cards.
Dynamic rotation and contextual selection within 3D
graphical windows (The number of different 3D windows depend only on computer
Printing of 3D windows in postscript format.
Customisable Toolbar and Menu, as well as ToolTips
Contextual menu through the right mouse button.
