Advanced parameters

The remaining parameters are in the advanced section and can be shown by clicking on the button with a wheel sign next to the search field in the panel Properties. The number parameters “Resolution”, “Tolerance” and “Iterations” are internal control parameters that influence precision and speed of the filter. “Resolution” is a approximately the number of control points along the hub and shroud patches. Raising the number of control points can increase the resolution of the approximated patches. “Tolerance” is proportional to the allowed absolute error in determination of point’s transformed coordinates $ (m, t, \zeta)$. The number should generally be smaller than the typical distance between two points in the original mesh. “Iterations” is the iteration limit set for determination of the transformed coordinates. It should not be necessary to raise the default value, unless an extremely fine mesh is being transformed. The field “Extension Points” is only used when “Snap internal points” is unchecked. It determines which sampled points of the boundary patches are used to extrapolate the patches. The number must be and integer greater than zero. If “1” is given, then only the tail of each patch is used to extrapolate their direction. If larger number is given, then the extrapolation runs in a more averaged direction. If “Snap internal points” is checked, no extrapolation is done and points outside the area bounded by hub and shroud are simply left with some extremal $ m$-coordinate. The check box “Remove split cells” (default: on) determines whether the cells that are split by unwrapping are to be removed or kept. Removing these cells allows ParaView to display the unwrapped mesh correctly; otherwise it looks as if there was no internal mesh. However, for special meshes this leads to a crash. In such cases, unchecking is an option. The option “Normalize patches” makes sure that the transformed hub and shroud patches will be of unit size in the $ \xi$ (i.e. $ z$) direction. This allows easy construction of the blade-to-blade view , but it may not be desired for the overall view. If this option is unchecked, the hub will still be normalized to unit size, but the transformed shroud will keep its ratio with respect to the hub. Finally, the “Debug output” option produces additional text information as a txt files in the working directory, which can be used to explore internal mechanisms of the filter, particularly the construction of the $ m$$ \xi$ ($ y$$ z$) contour which is then used to transform the whole mesh.
