Rate library blocks can be animated during the simulation if Run > Show 2D Animation has been selected before a simulation run. For blocks with animation, the following information explains what each display means.
☞ The models illustrated in this section are located in the folder \Examples\Discrete Rate\Miscel- laneous.
Tank
Tanks animate information about their levels and information about the direction of flow within the Tank.
Level information
The table below shows animation of the Tank’s level under different conditions.
Finite Capacity
Full (contents 100, capacity 100)
Some flow (contents 50, capacity 100)
Empty (contents 0, capacity 100)
