POSTPROC2 Documentation

Programm- und Modelldokumentation

POSTPROC2 is a program for the scientific analysis and processing of simulation results and measurement data. It specializes in the efficient handling of large time-dependent/dynamic data series (e.g. from DELPHIN).

A key feature of PostProc2 is the separation of data and its visualization. It enables the updating of data/files and thus also a live view of the calculation results.


Smart unit conversion+
Efficient memory management and strict separation of data and layout+
Enables update functionality even during running simulations+
Diagram, axis and line titles can display dynamic data with placeholders+
Wide range of configuration options for the diagrams+
Print-ready export (with size control!) as vector and bitmap graphics for web applications+
Data export including interpolation function in the table view+
Integrated calculation models, e.g. mold growth+
Simultaneous animation of e.g. temperature and humidity fields+
and it is available for download free of charge!+
Keyfeatures POSTPROC2

Project file format

The session files are written in XML format. Normally, only the changed data is written to the file. However, if you want to adjust your own parameters, you can first have all the parameters written out. To do this, you must activate the option Write complete session file in the settings dialog (File – Settings).

It is possible to adjust these session files externally in the editor and then reload them. This allows script-based evaluation sessions to be generated. Formatting settings for one diagram can also be easily transferred to another diagram. The external text editor can be opened via the menu command File – Edit session file in text editor or via the keyboard shortcut F2. If the session file was saved externally, the application asks whether the changed file should be loaded the next time it is activated.

Diagram export

One of the strengths of POSTPROC2 is the print-ready diagram export, whereby precise size and scaling settings are possible depending on the target application. Diagrams can be exported as bitmap graphics (pixel/raster-based, ideal for websites) or optimized for printed publications as vector graphics (pdf, svg, emf).

Two methods are offered for exporting diagrams. The quick direct copy to the clipboard with default settings is suitable for websites or low-resolution reports, for example. The use of the export dialog with very detailed export settings offers the user the option of using high resolutions or certain specifications for documents. To export a diagram, the relevant diagram window must be selected.
