Description :

General function for querying information about slice objects.

Command list :

d = gf_slice_get(slice S, 'dim')

Return the dimension of the slice (2 for a 2D mesh, etc..).

a = gf_slice_get(slice S, 'area')

Return the area of the slice.

CVids = gf_slice_get(slice S, 'cvs')

Return the list of convexes of the original mesh contained in the slice.

n = gf_slice_get(slice S, 'nbpts')

Return the number of points in the slice.

ns = gf_slice_get(slice S, 'nbsplxs'[, int dim])

Return the number of simplexes in the slice.

Since the slice may contain points (simplexes of dim 0), segments (simplexes of dimension 1), triangles etc., the result is a vector of size gf_slice_get(slice S, ‘dim’)+1, except if the optional argument dim is used.

P = gf_slice_get(slice S, 'pts')

Return the list of point coordinates.

{S, CV2S} = gf_slice_get(slice S, 'splxs',int dim)

Return the list of simplexes of dimension dim.

On output, S has ‘dim+1’ rows, each column contains the point numbers of a simplex. The vector CV2S can be used to find the list of simplexes for any convex stored in the slice. For example ‘S(:,CV2S(4):CV2S(5)-1)’ gives the list of simplexes for the fourth convex.

{P, E1, E2} = gf_slice_get(slice S, 'edges')

Return the edges of the linked mesh contained in the slice.

P contains the list of all edge vertices, E1 contains the indices of each mesh edge in P, and E2 contains the indices of each “edges” which is on the border of the slice. This function is useless except for post-processing purposes.

Usl = gf_slice_get(slice S, 'interpolate_convex_data', mat Ucv)

Interpolate data given on each convex of the mesh to the slice nodes.

The input array Ucv may have any number of dimensions, but its last dimension should be equal to gf_mesh_get(mesh M, ‘max cvid’).

Example of use: gf_slice_get(slice S, ‘interpolate_convex_data’, gf_mesh_get(mesh M, ‘quality’)).

m = gf_slice_get(slice S, 'linked mesh')

Return the mesh on which the slice was taken.

m = gf_slice_get(slice S, 'mesh')

Return the mesh on which the slice was taken (identical to ‘linked mesh’)

z = gf_slice_get(slice S, 'memsize')

Return the amount of memory (in bytes) used by the slice object.

gf_slice_get(slice S, 'export to vtk', string filename, ...)

Export a slice to VTK.

Following the filename, you may use any of the following options:

  • if ‘ascii’ is not used, the file will contain binary data (non portable, but fast).
  • if ‘edges’ is used, the edges of the original mesh will be written instead of the slice content.

More than one dataset may be written, just list them. Each dataset consists of either:

  • a field interpolated on the slice (scalar, vector or tensor), followed by an optional name.
  • a mesh_fem and a field, followed by an optional name.

Examples:

  • gf_slice_get(slice S, ‘export to vtk’, ‘test.vtk’, Usl, ‘first_dataset’, mf, U2, ‘second_dataset’)
  • gf_slice_get(slice S, ‘export to vtk’, ‘test.vtk’, ‘ascii’, mf,U2)
  • gf_slice_get(slice S, ‘export to vtk’, ‘test.vtk’, ‘edges’, ‘ascii’, Uslice)

gf_slice_get(slice S, 'export to pov', string filename)

Export a the triangles of the slice to POV-RAY.

gf_slice_get(slice S, 'export to dx', string filename, ...)

Export a slice to OpenDX.

Following the filename, you may use any of the following options:

  • if ‘ascii’ is not used, the file will contain binary data (non portable, but fast).
  • if ‘edges’ is used, the edges of the original mesh will be written instead of the slice content.
  • if ‘append’ is used, the opendx file will not be overwritten, and the new data will be added at the end of the file.

More than one dataset may be written, just list them. Each dataset consists of either:

  • a field interpolated on the slice (scalar, vector or tensor), followed by an optional name.
  • a mesh_fem and a field, followed by an optional name.

gf_slice_get(slice S, 'export to pos', string filename[, string name][[,mesh_fem mf1], mat U1, string nameU1[[,mesh_fem mf1], mat U2, string nameU2,...])

Export a slice to Gmsh.

More than one dataset may be written, just list them. Each dataset consists of either:

  • a field interpolated on the slice (scalar, vector or tensor).
  • a mesh_fem and a field.

s = gf_slice_get(slice S, 'char')

Output a (unique) string representation of the slice.

This can be used to perform comparisons between two different slice objects. This function is to be completed.

gf_slice_get(slice S, 'display')

displays a short summary for a slice object.
