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.

Enable PostScript Level 3 shading Default value: The first expression-list should contain three expression gmsj giving the X, Y and Z direction of the rotation axis; the second expression-list should contain three expression s giving the X, Y and Z components of any point on this axis; the last expression should contain the rotation angle in radians.

Sort the colormap in GIF output Default documenation Second coefficient in equation for clipping plane 5 Default value: Sub-elements are created in the new model polygons in 2D and polyhedra in 3D and border elements are created on the zero-levelset.

Several files can be loaded simultaneously in Gmsh. Component of the gradient to evaluate: You will then be asked to select a list of points, and to type e to finish the selection or q to abort it.

A format string in the form wxh or wxh,wx,wy,wz,hx,hy,hzwhere w and h are the width and height in model coordinates for T3 or in pixels for T2 of the image, wx,wy,wz is the direction of the bottom edge of the image and hx,hy,hz is the direction of the left edge of the image. If the number of a view is -1, the value of the corresponding component of the vector field is 0. Chains of a homology space basis.

## Gmsh Reference Manual

To learn how to run Gmsh on your computer, see Running Gmsh on your system. Plugin ModulusPhase is executed in-place. Should all duplicate entities be automatically removed? Linearly interpolate between data provided on a 3D rectangular structured grid. The evaluation priorities are summarized below 4 from stronger to weaker, i.

Vertical position in pixels of the upper left corner of the file chooser windows Default value: Third coefficient in equation for clipping plane 2 Default value: The last three cases permit to retrieve the coordinates of a given geometry point see Pointsto retrieve the elementary entities making up physical groups, and to retrieve the tags of all physical or elementary points, curves, surfaces or volumes in the model.

Page to render in the background image for multi-page PDFs Default value: Homology and cohomology computation in finite element modeling. Specifying a boundary layer index allows to extrude several independent boundary layers with independent normal smoothing. The list of default plugins is given in Post-processing plugins. 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 of 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.

The post-processing sections are identical to the ones in the version 2 file format see below.

### GetDP: a General Environment for the Treatment of Discrete Problems

The body enclosed between Doucmentation and the matching EndIf is evaluated if none of the expression of the previous matching codes If and ElseIf were non-zero. Enable lighting for the geometry Default value: Documenntation position of background image for 2D background: Likewise, a surface loop defining a hole should not have any surfaces in common with another surface loop defining a hole in the same volume in which case the two surface loops should be combined.

Compute the curvature of Field[IField]: File formatsUp: FLTK user interface theme try e. Plugin Divergence creates one new view. The three aforementioned methods can be used simultaneously, in which case the smallest element size is selected at any given point. Compute the maximum eigenvalue of the Hessian matrix of Field[IField], with the gradients evaluated by finite differences: Plugin NearToFarField creates one new view. Command parsed when double-clicking on a line Default value: All element sizes are further constrained by the Mesh.

Non-interactive modePrevious: For the list of all command-line options, see Command-line options. Fourth coefficient in equation for clipping plane 4 Default value: Color expressionsPrevious: Select the expression -th field as the one used to compute element sizes. Note that the binary mode will evolve in a future minor revision of the format to allow for bit node and element tags.

Exists checks if a variable with the given name exists i. The third documfntation is a list of physical groups that constitute the relative subdomain of relative homology computation; if empty, absolute homology is computed.

OptionsFileName 1 or per model 2 each time you quit Gmsh?

The mesh generation is performed in the same bottom-up flow as the geometry creation:
