8.2 Post-processing plugins

Post-processing plugins permit to extend the functionality of Gmsh’s post-processing module. The difference between regular post-processing options (see section Post-processing options list) and post-processing plugins is that regular post-processing options only change the way the data is displayed, while post-processing plugins either create new post-processing views, or modify the data stored in a view (in a destructive, non-reversible way).

Plugins are available in the GUI by right-clicking on a view button (or by clicking on the black arrow next to the view button) and then selecting the ‘Plugin’ submenu.

Here is the list of the plugins that are shipped by default with Gmsh:

Plugin(AnalyseCurvedMesh)

Plugin(AnalyseCurvedMesh) check the jacobian of all elements of dimension ’Dim’ or the greater model dimension if ’Dim’ is either <0 or >3.

Analysis : 0 do nothing +1 find invalid elements (*) +2 compute J_min and J_max of all elements and print some statistics

Effect (for *) : 0 do nothing +1 print a list of invalid elements +2 print some statistics +4 hide valid elements (for GUI)

MaxDepth = 0,1,... 0 : only sample the jacobian 1 : compute Bezier coefficients 2+ : execute a maximum of 1+ subdivision(s)

JacBreak = [0,1[ : if a value of the jacobian <= ’JacBreak’ is found, the element is said to be invalid

BezBreak = [0,JacBreak[ : if all Bezier coefficients are > ’BezBreak’, the element is said to be valid

Tolerance = R+ , << 1 : tolerance (relatively to J_min and J_max) used during the computation of J_min and J_max Numeric options:

Plugin(Scal2Vec)

Plugin(Scal2Vec) converts the scalar fields of ’ViewX’, ’ViewY’ and/or ’ViewZ’ into a vectorial field. The new view ’NameNewView’ contains it.

If the value of ’ViewX’, ’ViewY’ or ’ViewZ’ is -1, the value of the vectorial field in the corresponding direction is 0. String options:

NameNewView

Default value: "NewView"

Numeric options:

ViewX

Default value: -1

ViewY

Default value: -1

ViewZ

Default value: -1

Plugin(SimplePartition)

Plugin(SimplePartition) partitions the current mesh into ‘NumSlices’ slices, along the X-, Y- or Z-axis depending on the value of ‘Direction’ (0,1,2). The plugin creates partition boundaries if ‘CreateBoundaries’ is set. String options:

Mapping

Default value: "t"

Numeric options:

NumSlices

Default value: 4

Direction

Default value: 0

CreateBoundaries

Default value: 1

Plugin(Skin)

Plugin(Skin) extracts the boundary (skin) of the current mesh (if ‘FromMesh’ = 1), or from the the view ‘View’ (in which case it creates a new view). If ‘View’ < 0 and ‘FromMesh’ = 0, the plugin is run on the current view. If ‘Visible’ is set, the plugin only extracts the skin of visible entities. Numeric options:

Visible

Default value: 1

FromMesh

Default value: 0

View

Default value: -1

Plugin(Smooth)

Plugin(Smooth) averages the values at the nodes of the view ‘View’.

If ‘View’ < 0, the plugin is run on the current view.

Plugin(Smooth) is executed in-place. Numeric options:

View

Default value: -1

Plugin(SphericalRaise)

Plugin(SphericalRaise) transforms the coordinates of the elements in the view ‘View’ using the values associated with the ‘TimeStep’-th time step.

Instead of elevating the nodes along the X, Y and Z axes as with the View[‘View’].RaiseX, View[‘View’].RaiseY and View[‘View’].RaiseZ options, the raise is applied along the radius of a sphere centered at (‘Xc’, ‘Yc’, ‘Zc’).

To produce a standard radiation pattern, set ‘Offset’ to minus the radius of the sphere the original data lives on.

If ‘View’ < 0, the plugin is run on the current view.

Plugin(SphericalRaise) is executed in-place. Numeric options:

Xc

Default value: 0

Yc

Default value: 0

Zc

Default value: 0

Raise

Default value: 1

Offset

Default value: 0

TimeStep

Default value: 0

View

Default value: -1

Plugin(StreamLines)

Plugin(StreamLines) computes stream lines from the ‘TimeStep’-th time step of a vector view ‘View’ and optionally interpolates the scalar view ‘OtherView’ on the resulting stream lines.

The plugin takes as input a grid defined by the 3 points (‘X0’,‘Y0’,‘Z0’) (origin), (‘X1’,‘Y1’,‘Z1’) (axis of U) and (‘X2’,‘Y2’,‘Z2’) (axis of V).

The number of points along U and V that are to be transported is set with the options ‘NumPointsU’ and ‘NumPointsV’. The equation

dX(t)/dt = V(x,y,z)

is then solved with the initial condition X(t=0) chosen as the grid and with V(x,y,z) interpolated on the vector view.

The time stepping scheme is a RK44 with step size ‘DT’ and ‘MaxIter’ maximum number of iterations.

If ‘TimeStep’ < 0, the plugin tries to compute streamlines of the unsteady flow.

If ‘View’ < 0, the plugin is run on the current view.

Plugin(StreamLines) creates one new view. This view contains multi-step vector points if ‘OtherView’ < 0, or single-step scalar lines if ‘OtherView’ >= 0. Numeric options:

X0

Default value: 0

Y0

Default value: 0

Z0

Default value: 0

X1

Default value: 1

Y1

Default value: 0

Z1

Default value: 0

X2

Default value: 0

Y2

Default value: 1

Z2

Default value: 0

NumPointsU

Default value: 10

NumPointsV

Default value: 1

DT

Default value: 0.1

MaxIter

Default value: 100

TimeStep

Default value: 0

View

Default value: -1

OtherView

Default value: -1

Plugin(Tetrahedralize)

Plugin(Tetrahedralize) tetrahedralizes the points in the view ‘View’.

If ‘View’ < 0, the plugin is run on the current view.

Plugin(Tetrahedralize) creates one new view. Numeric options:

View

Default value: -1

Plugin(Transform)

Plugin(Transform) transforms the homogeneous node coordinates (x,y,z,1) of the elements in the view ‘View’ by the matrix

[‘A11’ ‘A12’ ‘A13’ ‘Tx’] [‘A21’ ‘A22’ ‘A23’ ‘Ty’] [‘A31’ ‘A32’ ‘A33’ ‘Tz’].

If ‘SwapOrientation’ is set, the orientation of the elements is reversed.

If ‘View’ < 0, the plugin is run on the current view.

Plugin(Transform) is executed in-place. Numeric options:

A11

Default value: 1

A12

Default value: 0

A13

Default value: 0

A21

Default value: 0

A22

Default value: 1

A23

Default value: 0

A31

Default value: 0

A32

Default value: 0

A33

Default value: 1

Tx

Default value: 0

Ty

Default value: 0

Tz

Default value: 0

SwapOrientation

Default value: 0

View

Default value: -1

Plugin(Triangulate)

Plugin(Triangulate) triangulates the points in the view ‘View’, assuming that all the points belong to a surface that can be projected one-to-one onto a plane.

If ‘View’ < 0, the plugin is run on the current view.

Plugin(Triangulate) creates one new view. Numeric options:

View

Default value: -1

Plugin(Warp)

Plugin(Warp) transforms the elements in the view ‘View’ by adding to their node coordinates the vector field stored in the ‘TimeStep’-th time step of the view ‘OtherView’, scaled by ‘Factor’.

If ‘View’ < 0, the plugin is run on the current view.

If ‘OtherView’ < 0, the vector field is taken as the field of surface normals multiplied by the ‘TimeStep’ value in ‘View’. (The smoothing of the surface normals is controlled by the ‘SmoothingAngle’ parameter.)

Plugin(Warp) is executed in-place. Numeric options:

Factor

Default value: 1

TimeStep

Default value: 0

SmoothingAngle

Default value: 180

View

Default value: -1

OtherView

Default value: -1
