Update: Triangular Graph Documents are now Graph Documents

Beginning with Synapse 3.0 and Cranium 4.0 (Core Version 317), the functionality of the XY Graph documents and Triangular Graph documents have been combined into a single Graph document with chapters for xy graphs and triangular graphs. Please see the documentation on Graph Documents for details on working with graphs and the documentation on converting graphs for details on how to convert previous version graphs.

Triangular Graphs Chapter (old version)
Applicability: Cranium, Synapse (core versions 0315 to 0316)

The Triangular Graphs chapter is found in Triangular Graph documents. The chapter manages the triangular graphs displaying data found in the document's triangular data sets chapter.

Typical Usage
  • Phase equilibrium diagrams containing three components are easily visualized on triangular graphs. Liquid-liquid equilibrium diagrams are one such phase diagram.
  • Triangular diagrams are veru good for displaying properties dependent upon the composition of ternary mixtures. For example, the colors of ternary mixtures of gold, silver and copper can be displayed well on a triangular diagram.
Chapter Sections

The chapter's datapane is divided into four sections:

Section Description
Triangular Datasets Section contains a field for specifying the data sets that are displayed on the current graph.
Triangular Graph Section contains one large field for viewing and editing axes, data points curves, shapes and notes that comprise the current triangular graph.
General Notes Section used to store general notes about the current graph. This field often contains a brief overview of the current graph's contents.
Associated Documents Section used to store links to any documents associated with the current graph.
Chapter Commands

The Triangular Graphs chapter's commands are available from the chapter's Commands menu.

Common Commands

The menubar provides numerous other commands for navigation, bookmarking, file operations, units conversion, etc. See the documentation on Common Commands for details.
