Volume Ratio and Area Ratio are available when blocks or domains are selected, respectively, for Examine. They are both calculated in the same manner as follows:
max [Size(i)/minSizeAdj(j), maxSizeAdj(j)/Size(i)]
Size(i) = area or volume of the cell i
minSizeAdj(j) = minimum area or volume of the adjacent cell j
maxSizeAdj(j) = maximum area or volume of the adjacent cell j
These functions are calculated across entity boundaries when adjacent entities are also selected for Examine.
Tip: The Volume Ratio and Area Ratio functions are excellent diagnostics for finding cell size discontinuities at block and domain interfaces.
