The Volume Ratio (Fidelity) examine metric is available when at least one block is selected for Examine. This metric is compatible with the Fidelity Adjacent Cell Volume Ratio metric.

For a given cell i, the volume ratio with a neighboring cell j is computed as follow:

ACVRj = max [Vi/Vj, Vj/Vi]


ACVRj = Adjacent cell volume ratio between cells i and j
Vi = Volume of cell i
Vj = Volume of the adjacent cell j

The final volume ratio for cell i is computed by taking the maximum of all the volume ratios computed for each adjacent cell j:

ACVR = max [ACVRj]

This function is calculated across entity boundaries when adjacent entities are also selected for Examine.


Tip: The Volume Ratio function is an excellent diagnostic for finding cell size discontinuities at block interfaces.
