Detailed Description

MeshViz Defines an abstract mesh.

A mesh is a set of nodes linked by edges. A mesh can be a surface mesh (see PbMesh2D) or a volume mesh (see PbMesh3D). A surface mesh can be either 2D (its nodes have 2 coordinates) or 3D (its nodes have 3 coordinates). Each node is referred to by an index named node_index.

A mesh is composed of a list of cells. A cell is a "simple" basic volume or surface element that connects adjacent nodes of the mesh. Surface meshes can be defined by triangles, quadrangles and polygonal cells. Volume meshes can be defined by tetrahedrons, hexahedrons, prisms, or pyramid cells. A cell is defined by the list of nodes (node indices) that it connects. The order of the nodes that define a cell is the same for each cell in the mesh. Each cell is referred to by an index named cell_index.

A list of value-set can be defined. A value is a scalar (float), string, or a vector. Each value is located on mesh node, so the number of values in a set must be equal to the number of mesh's nodes. Each set of values can be named by a string.

A scalar value set is used to color the representations of the mesh. A string value set is used by some charting representations. A vector value set is used to make "hedgehog" vector field representations, or streamline representations. Each data-set is referred by an index named set_index. This index is used by classes of mesh representation to indicate which value set must be used for coloring. (see PoMesh::valuesIndex and PoMesh::vecsIndex). Mapping a scalar value onto a color is done by PbDataMapping or PoDataMapping classes (and derived).

Data duplication:

If the last argument is_data_duplicate of a constructor of a derived class is FALSE, the geometry and values sets are not copied by the object.

In this case, the methods setGeometry, addValuesSet, addStringsSet and addVecsSet save only the adress of the user data set and it is the application's responsibility to manage the validity of data during the existence of the mesh object.

Member Enumeration Documentation

Data binding.

Specifies how data is specified (i.e., per cell or per node) for a data set.

Enumerator:
PER_CELL 

The data set contains one data value per cell.

PER_NODE 

The data set contains one data value per node.


Constructor & Destructor Documentation

PbMesh::PbMesh ( SbBool  is_data_duplicated = TRUE  ) 

Constructor.

If the argument is_data_duplicate is FALSE, the geometry and values sets are not copied by the object.

PbMesh::PbMesh ( const PbMesh mesh  ) 

Copy constructor.

PbMesh::~PbMesh (  ) 

Destructor.


Member Function Documentation

virtual void PbMesh::addStringsSet ( int  set_index,
const SbString val,
const SbString set_name = "" 
) [virtual]

Adds a set of string values .

The number of string in a set must be equal to the number of nodes in the mesh. The set can be optionally named (set_name parameter).

void PbMesh::addValuesSet ( int  set_index,
const float *  val,
DataBinding  binding,
const SbString set_name = "" 
)

Adds a set of scalar values that can be located either at nodes or at cells.

Warning: At this time, the PER_CELL data binding is taken into account only by the following classes:

The other classes use inherited coloring mode when the PER_CELL binding is used.

Parameters:
set_index the index of the new set added.
val the array of values. Its size must be either the number of nodes or the number of cells depending on the binding argument.
binding specifies the location of the values.
set_name string associated with this set of values.

NOTE: This method must be called after a setGeometry method because the size of the argument val is determined by the number of nodes in the mesh. The setGeometry methods are defined in subclasses of PbMesh.

virtual void PbMesh::addValuesSet ( int  set_index,
const float *  val,
const SbString set_name = "" 
) [virtual]

Adds a set of scalar values.

The values are located at nodes so the number of values in a set must be equal to the number of nodes in the mesh.

Parameters:
set_index the index of the new set added.
val the array of values. Its size must be the number of nodes.
set_name string associated with this set of values.

NOTE: This method must be called after a setGeometry method because the size of the argument val is determined by the number of nodes in the mesh. The setGeometry methods are defined in subclasses of PbMesh.

virtual void PbMesh::addVecsSet ( int  set_index,
const SbVec3f val,
const SbString set_name = "" 
) [virtual]

Adds a set of vector values .

The number of values in a set must be equal to the number of nodes in the mesh. The set can be optionally named (set_name parameter).

virtual const PbCell* PbMesh::findContainingCell ( const SbVec3f point,
float  tolerance,
SbVec3f pcoord 
) const [virtual]

Find the cell that contains the point.

If the (optional) adjacent cell is given, searching the containing cell starts by the cells around this adjacent one. Returns also the parametric coordinates of the point in the found cell. Parametric coordinates are the coordinates of the point relative to a topological equivalent unit cell. A point is inside a cell if its parametric coordinates range from 0 to 1. However we use a test with a tolerance value : a point is inside the cell if its parametric coordinates p verify -tolerance <= p <= 1+tolerance. Parametric coordinates are useful to interpolate the value in the cell (see PbCell::getValue). Attention! This method returns always the same address of an internal private cell. This private cell is updated each time findContainingCell is called.

Reimplemented in PbMesh1D, PbParalCartesianGrid2D, PbParalCartesianGrid3D, PbRegularCartesianGrid2D, and PbRegularCartesianGrid3D.
