A plot is a graphical technique for representing a data set, usually as a graph showing the relationship between two or more variables. The plot can be drawn by hand or by a computer. In the past, sometimes mechanical or electronic plotters were used.

Cross-plot is a synonym for scatter plots used primarily in the Earth Sciences and Social Sciences to describe a specialized chart that compares multiple measurements made at a single time or location along two or more axes. The axes of the plot are commonly linear, but may also be logarithmic.

A robust tool for data processing and visualisation, HyperGraph 2D has interfaces for several widely used file formats. Even the most difficult mathematical formulas can be processed by its advanced math engine. These functions are combined with customizable options and high-quality presentation output in HyperGraph 2D to produce a comprehensive data analysis system for any organisation.

**Benefits**

Design, test and analysis engineers can use HyperGraph 2D's user-friendly plotting and data analysis software. Engineers can examine and analyse data more quickly because of HyperGraph 2D's mix of an intuitive interface and a powerful set of automation capabilities. This, in turn, reduces the amount of time and human work needed to make graphs.

**Step 1:**

Import the** .H3D file** in HyperView, then Click on the “**Build Plot**” option as shown below:

**Step 2:**

Click the drop-down list box, choose the Result type as “**Displacement**”, then select the Magnitude.

**Step 3:**

Now select the **Node**, at which the displacement has to be calculated along the direction of motion and click on the “**Apply**” button, to get the **Displacement vs Time Graph**.

By now the Window will be split into two parts as **HyperView** and **HyperGraph 2D** which contains the Graph as shown below:

**Step 4:**

After getting the Displacement vs Time graph, switch your **Hyperview** window into **HyperGraph 2D** by clicking the

icon, in order to plot the Total Resultant Force vs Time graph.

**Step 5:**

In order to get the Total resultant force graph, select the X Type as **Time** and Y Type as **Interface** (ref img 1), which is created between the Impactor and Car, then click “Apply” button as shown below (ref img 2):

**Step 6:**

After getting the graph, click on the **MATH **option available in the **Menu bar** in order to **Cross Plot** the Total Resultant Force vs Time and Displacement vs Time Graph.

If the **MATH** option is not available in the Menu bar, do the following procedures to get the MATH option:

- Click the
**File → Load → Preference File**. - Now the
**Preferences**dialogue box will appear. - Select the
**Vehicle Safety Tools**under the Registered Preferences. - Click on the “
**Load**” button to get the**MATH**option in the Menu bar.

**Step 7:**

By clicking on the MATH option, we will get the window layout as shown below. In order to select **Curve X**, we have to press Shift +Left Mouse and Click on the **Displacement curve**. For the **Curve Y**, we have to press Shift +Left Mouse Click on the **Total Resultant Force curve** (ref img 3)

After clicking on the curve, we will get the corresponding value of the Graph, as shown below:

**Step 8:**

After selecting the curves in the Parameters, Click on the **Use Current plot** under Layout and click on the “**Apply**” button. Now you will be getting two curves, which overlap each other. Delete the old curve.

**Step 9:**

Finally, we will get the Force vs Displacement graph as shown below:

**Step 10:**** ****To rename the X axis and Y axis**

Move the cursor on the X axis, it will turn to Orange colour. Click on it and rename it as Displacement and click on the Y axis, rename it as Force.

After renaming both the **X axis** as Displacement and **Y axis** as Force, Click on the “**Apply**” button to get the **Force vs Displacement graph** by Cross Plotting.

What is Tetra Meshing?

Tetrahedral is a four- nodded solid element that can be generated through the tria element by creating a volume and also through the existing volume of the geometry. These elements are used where the geometry has high thickness and complexity. The image attached below is a representation of a Tetra element. The Tetra element will have 4 triangular faces with four nodes joining them together

Realizing Connectors In HyperMesh

A connector is a mechanism that specifies how an object (vertex, edge, or face) is connected to another object or the ground. By often simulating the desired behaviour without having to build the precise shape or specify contact circumstances, connectors make modeling simpler.
