Tecplot RS 2022 R1

I’m Raja Olimuthu, Product Manager for Tecplot RS. My team is excited to announce the RS 2022 R1 release – we are eager for you to start taking advantage of all the newest features. Here is a quick overview of the most significant updates in the 2022 R1 release.

Timestep Access for Equations

Users can now “freeze” a dynamic variable at a specific timestep and use that value in a grid equation. For example, if you want to include Pressure at timestep 3 in an equation, you can now do that with the following example syntax: {NEWVARIABLE}={PRESSURE[3]-{PRESSURE}. In this equation, the pressure value at the 3rd timestep is held as a constant while the 2nd pressure value in the equation remains a dynamic variable, and will change as you advance the timestep. In order to determine the current timestep #, simply hover over the date next to the VCR controls, and the number will be displayed.

Grid Frame Ordering

When comparing a large number of grid solutions, users found it very difficult to control the ordering of the frames (in previous versions, you had to load the grids in the order that you wanted them displayed). We remedied that by building a new UI in the Compare Grid Data dialog that will allow you to easily activate the comparison grids you wish to view and re-order the frames by using the arrows or by simply dragging the grid solution to the desired spot

(BETA): Bubble Plot Guided Tutorial

In this release, we are rolling out a beta version of the Guided Tutorials. Customers have been asking us to build something embedded in RS that will guide them through complex operations and workflows step by step. For the first tutorial, we decided to walk users through setting up bubble plots, which is an extremely valuable spatial view, and can be used to understand things like the proportion of water/oil at each well, or even visually understand a history match.

Try it out and give us feedback. In future versions, our vision is to have a full catalog of multiple guided tutorials. If you have ideas of workflows you’d like to see, shoot us an email! We hope this can be a valuable learning tool for both new and seasoned RS users.

Please contact me directly at r.olimuthu@tecplot.com if you would like a 1:1 demonstration of RS 2022 R1. For those of you who do not have access to Tecplot RS, I’ll be happy to set you up with an evaluation version of our software. Looking forward to hearing from you.
