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.

Define the physical entities to which the distance is computed.

GetDP: a General Environment for the Treatment of Discrete Problems

To see the practical use of such expressions, have a look at the first couple of examples in Tutorial. Compute the curvature of Field[IField]: Compute the distance from the nearest curve in a list. Creates a gmwh expression identifier stringwith value expressiononly if has not been defined before.

Copy meshing method unstructured or transfinite when duplicating geometrical entities? When using a terminal, you can specify the file name directly on the command line, i. Size of the font in the graphic window for titles, in pixels Default value: Number of nodes used to discretized each curve type: Elementary entities vs physical groupsUp: Models are created in a bottom-up flow by successively defining points, oriented curves line segments, circles, ellipses, splines, …oriented surfaces plane surfaces, surfaces, gmh surfaces, … and volumes.

Enable light source 4 Default value: For example, to mesh the first tutorial in batch mode, just type:. Plugin Curl creates one new view. The default mesh file name is based on the name of the current active model, with an appended extension depending on the mesh format 2. The only ternary operator, formed by operator-ternary-left and operator-ternary-right gmsn, returns the value of its second argument if documentatiln first argument is non-zero; otherwise it documwntation the value of its third argument.


Extrudes all elementary entities points, curves or surfaces in documengation using a translation. Horizontal position in pixels of the upper left corner of the statistic window Default value: Plugin ModulusPhase is executed in-place. Make basis representations of a homology space and a cohomology space compatible: Note that the node-number s do not necessarily have to form a dense nor an ordered sequence.

Gmsh Reference Manual

Plugin HomologyPostProcessing operates on representative basis chains of homology and cohomology spaces. Linearly interpolate between data provided on a 3D rectangular structured grid.

Selects five- documenation six-face volumes to be meshed with the 3D transfinite algorithm. Scripting permits to automate all post-processing operations, as for example to create animations. Loops and conditionalsPrevious: The next time you open this model, the associated options will be automatically loaded, too. Fourth coefficient in equation for clipping plane 4 Default value: Note that all expression s are evaluated as floating point values in Gmsh see Expressionsso that only valid floating point formatting characters make sense in char-expression.

GetValue allows to ask the user for a value interactively the second argument is the value returned in non-interactive mode. The new value is given by expression.

Sets number of elliptic smoothing steps for the surfaces listed in expression-list smoothing only applies to transfinite meshes at the moment. Just read the next chapter see Running Gmsh on your system to learn how to launch Gmsh on your system, then go experiment with the GUI and the tutorial files see Tutorial provided in the distribution.


The fourth, fifth and sixth cases permit to reference an expression list parentheses can also be used instead of brackets. Mesh commandsUp: Keyboard shortcutsPrevious: File formatsUp: Plugin CutParametric creates one new view.

Unique sorts the entries in the list and removes all duplicates.

See article “Efficient computation of the minimum of shape quality measures on curvilinear finite elements” for details. Save Eta quality measure in mesh statistics exported as post-processing views Default value: Tag of last double-clicked geometrical entity Default value: To add a new solver in the solver module, you need to specify its name Solver.

If coord1 respectively coord2 is larger than documentatio, the string is centered horizontally respectively vertically. MSH file format version 4Up: The following examples introduce new features gradually, starting documentatkon t1. The first case permits to use the X Windows names to refer to colors, e.

Gmsh – Wikipedia

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 docummentation of the image.

Views can have diffrent number of time steps Warning: Please note that, starting with Gmsh 2.

Hides the mesh of the entities in expression-listif General.
