# two part calculated results?

When I finisehd a steady state simulation, and calculating the part's temperature summary.

I'll get two results for the same part like below:

Part ID: 27 Name: ESPRESSO_CHASSIS:1

Minimum coordinates of bounding box: ( -121.8, -23.305, -73)

Volume = 77913 mm3

Minimum Temperature = 84.82 Celsius at ( -121.8, -7.7326, -23.053)

Maximum Temperature = 92.711784 Celsius at ( 64.81, -13.983, 34.186)

Volume Averaged Temperature = 89.343 Celsius

Part ID: 27 Name: ESPRESSO_CHASSIS:1

Minimum coordinates of bounding box: ( -121.8, -23.305, -73)

Volume = 77913 mm3

Minimum Temperature = 85.438 Celsius at ( -121.8, -7.7326, -23.053)

Maximum Temperature = 93.364090 Celsius at ( 64.81, -13.983, 34.186)

Volume Averaged Temperature = 89.984 Celsius

Why two results?

And some are the same but some different from the decision center with Summary Parts

Min Temperature 84.82

Max Temperature 92.712

Avg Temperature 90.986

Anyone knows why?

Many thanks!!!

Not sure, but I think each one corresponds to a set of saved results (iteration number/timestep).  For example if you ran it 100 iterations, got results, then ran 200 more - there would be 2 results for each part.

I have submitted a request on IdeaStation to improve this behavior.  (item 3 here if you want to vote it up).
