Expression Evaluator (Tool)
This expression calculator is used as a tool for rapid evaluation of simple expressions, like 1/25 or Math.Sin(3.14). It can be helpful for calculating values required as input of boundary conditions or input of material- or surface properties.
This tool can be started from the menu Tools.
Expression entered into the input field must conform to the syntax of the programming language chosen. To receive the result R of an expression E (R = E) one shell enter the expression term E into the input field.
All functions available in the respective programming language can be used
also - especially mathematical functions like
Math.Sin or Math.Log etc.
Remark: If the expression entered leads to an error there will be a pop-up window revealed explaining the cause.
Remark: Please be aware of the fact, that numeric constants must conform to the syntax of the programming language, thus the decimal comma (for example) might differ from the current localisation of the system as shown here above.
Remark: Detailed syntax descriptions for expressions:
Note: You shall switch between input fields by using the TAB-key. Using that key confirms the data entry. On the other hand it provides a good alternative compared to permanent mouse use.
