Graph Material Queries

After a Query has been created using Add Material Query, Query Boundary or Query Excavations, the data generated by the Query can be graphed using the Graph Material Queries option. To graph material Query data:

  1. Select Graph Material Queries Graph Material Queries icon from the toolbar or the Graph menu. You will first be prompted to select the material queries to graph (any number of queries can be graphed on the same plot).
  2. You can select individual queries with the left mouse button, or multiple queries with a window, or all queries (in the view) by using Select All in the right-click menu.
  3. When you are finished selecting, press Enter, or right-click and select Graph Selected from the popup menu. You will see the Graph Query Data dialog.
  4. Make your selections in the Graph Query Data dialog. Note:
    • The default Vertical Axis option (Query Data), will plot data interpolated from the currently contoured data type (e.g. Sigma 1, Strength Factor etc) which you are viewing. However, you may plot Normal or Shear stress along the Query line / polyline, by selecting the Normal Stress or Shear Stress options (total or effective stress).
    • The Stages to Plot option allows you to select any or all stages for which to plot data by selecting the desired checkboxes.
  5. When you have made your selections in the dialog:
    • The Plot button will generate the graph in RS2
    • The Copy Data button will copy the data to the Windows clipboard. From the clipboard, the data can be pasted into other applications for report writing, further analysis, etc.

See the Plot in Excel and Copy Data to clipboard topics for more information.

Query Data Graphs

  • The Distance axis corresponds to the distance along the query line(s) i.e. the distance is relative to the path of the query line. Zero distance corresponds to the first point of each query.
  • The y-axis of a graph corresponds to the contour data being viewed (i.e. Sigma 1, Strength Factor, etc), or to Normal or Shear stress along the query line, if these options were selected for the Vertical Axis.
  • The Query ID numbers are automatically generated, and are used to identify material queries. The ID numbers also indicate which end of a query line (on the model) corresponds to the end of each curve (on the graph). The ID numbers are necessary for identifying multiple queries on the same graph. To turn OFF the display of query ID numbers, you can simply right-click on a query, and uncheck the ID Number option (also available in the Edit option in the right-click menu).

Right-Click Shortcut

A shortcut for graphing a single query, is to right-click ON a query line, and select Graph Data from the popup menu. The procedure is then the same as steps 4 and 5 above.
