14.2 Displacement Map
FEBio Studio uses the displacement map to define the deformation of the model at each state. The displacement map can be accessed in the Model Viewer by selecting the item entitled displacement map (this is a sub-item of the model item). Click on it to display the properties in the Properties Window, located at the bottom of the Model Viewer. The Displacement map has two parameters that the user can change.
- Data field: is the data field that FEBio Studio will use to calculate the model's deformation.
- Scale Factor: sets the displacement scale factor, which can be used to scale the displacements when displaying the model in the Graphics View. (This scale factor does affect strain measures.)
Note that you must enable the displacement map by clicking on the enable button in the Model Viewer (this is the button with the checkmark). Similarly, by clicking the button again the displacement map can be deactivated in which case the model will not be deformed when displaying the different time steps.
