How to visualize the maximum/minimum value of a field inside the post-processor?

Whether you are running a CFD or a FEM simulation, there are various use cases that would require you to identify the location of the maximum and minimum associated with a particular solution field (Displacement, Pressure, etc).

The statistics tool inside the post-processor allows doing so very easily as highlighted in the image below.

  1. Enable the statistics tool
  2. Simply select any face(s)/volume(s) that you would like to obtain statistics on
  3. Toggle on the “Highlight on Model”

It is useful to know that the statistics tool is dynamic, which means once enabled you can go about selecting more faces/volumes and the results would be updated automatically in the statistics result window.
