This option allows the user to assign existing materials to objects and surfaces previously selected from the geometry tab. Selecting this option shows the following panel on the right side of the screen.
Assign Material panel
The following operations can be applied to surfaces:
- Perfect Conductor: Type of material that is selected by default. It corresponds to the metallic material.
- Material defined by geometry: This option allows the user to select a custom material and a thickness value for the selected objects and/or surfaces. If the ‘Volume’ option is selected, the objects (not surfaces) will be transformed to a volume and this property will be considered for the meshing and simulation.
- Material defined by reflection coefficient: This option allows the user to select a custom material for the selected objects and/or surfaces.
In order to assign a material to a surface or an object, first, select this one on the screen and then choose the material to be assigned. Finally, click on Save button.
