This document is a tutorial on the Gmsh mesh generator. It is aimed towards complete beginners; only some ba- sic knowledge of the Linux. This list is for questions and discussions about Gmsh features, resources, bugs, and so forth. Useful links: Gmsh homepage (for documentation, downloads, etc.) . Gmsh is a finite-element mesh generator developed by Christophe Geuzaine and Gmsh website · Official Gmsh Documentation · Gmsh Tutorials by Dolfyn.

Returns the next available region tag.
Make basis representations of a homology space and a cohomology space compatible: Gmsh is not in the public domain; it is copyrighted and there are restrictions on its distribution see the license and the related frequently asked questions. For both 2D and 3D text objects, the list-of-values can contain an arbitrary number of char-expression s.
Nodes are assumed to be defined before elements. Display size of points in pixels Default value: User-defined operations can also be performed on post-processing views through dynamically loadable plugins.
Draw background gradient 0: For example, in three dimensions, the triangles discretizing a surface will be forced to be faces of tetrahedra in the final 3D mesh only if the surface is part documenfation the boundary of a volume; the line elements discretizing a curve will be forced to be edges of tetrahedra in the final 3D mesh only if the curve is part of the boundary of a surface, itself part of the boundary of a volume; a single node discretizing a point in the middle of a volume will be forced to be a node of one of the tetrahedra in the final 3D mesh only if this point is connected to a curve, itself part of the boundary of a surface, itself part of the boundary of a volume.
Maximum Y-axis forced value Default value: The syntax of the transformation commands is:.
Here is a pseudo C code documentatlon write elements-binary for triangles with the 2 standard tags the physical and elementary regions:. Third trackball quaternion component used if General. Boolean operationsUp: Subtracts and affects, item per item, the right hand side expression-list to an existing expression list identifier.
Generate recombined elements in the boundary layer type: This integer is used for detecting if the computer on which the binary file was written and the computer on which the file is read are of the same type little or big endian.
GetDP: a General Environment for the Treatment of Discrete Problems
The expression-list on documentaation right-hand-side should contain the tags of three or four points on the boundary of the surface that define the corners of the transfinite interpolation. The specification of any input to these modules is done either interactively using the graphical user interface, in ASCII text files using Gmsh’s own scripting language. X position of light source 2 Default value: If you use GetDP please cite documentatin of the references in your work books, articles, reports, etc.
Minimum model coordinate along the Y-axis read-only Default value: Relative radius of arrow stem Default value: Width in pixels of the generic extra window Default value: Threshold angle for creating a mesh fan in docmuentation boundary layer type: File name of the Gmsh executable read-only Default value: Future versions of Gmsh will continue to support these formats, but we recommend that you do not use them in new applications.
Colors expressions are hybrids between fixed-length braced expression-list s and string s:.

Horizontal position in pixels of the upper left corner of the graphic window Default value: The ICN measure is related to the condition number of the stiffness matrix. That is, newreg returns the maximum of newpnewlnewsnewvnewllnewsl and all physical group tags 5.
If the number of a view is -1, the value of the corresponding component of the vector field is 0. The final element sizes are of course constrained by documebtation structured algorithms for which the element sizes are explicitly specified e. The documenation subsections describe all the available geometry commands.
Minimum Z-axis coordinate Default value: SubdivisionAlgorihm option see Mesh options list. With the built-in kernel, the first curve loop should be composed of either three or four elementary curves. Minimum Y-axis coordinate Default value: Combines all the post-processing views having the same name into new views.

The resulting basis chains of documemtation dimension together with the mesh are saved to the given file. If style is equal to zero, the text is aligned bottom-left and displayed using the default font and size.
The second case permits to define colors by using three expressions to specify their red, green and blue components with values comprised between 0 and Should all duplicate entities be automatically removed? Statistics are printed and, if asked, a Pview is created for each measure.
Number of nodes used to discretized each curve type:
