Detailed Description

MeshViz Defines an abstract cell of an extracted surface mesh.

A surface cell is a polygon element that connects adjacent nodes of a surface mesh.

Member Function Documentation

virtual double MeXSurfaceCell::getArea ( const MiGeometryI meshGeometry  )  const [pure virtual]

Gets the area of the cell.

An application does not need to override this method.

Parameters:
[in] meshGeometry The geometry of the mesh. Used to retrieve the node coordinates of this cell.
virtual MbVec3d MeXSurfaceCell::getNormal ( const MiGeometryI meshGeometry  )  const [pure virtual]

Gets the unit normal vector to the surface's plane.

An application does not need to override this method.

Parameters:
[in] meshGeometry The geometry of the mesh. Used to retrieve the node coordinates of this cell.
virtual size_t MeXSurfaceCell::getNumEdges (  )  const [pure virtual]

Gets the number of edges.


For non linear cell, the number of edges is independent of the order of the cell. For instance, getNumEdges will always return 3 for a linear triangle cell, a quadratic triangle cell, a cubic triangle cell etc...
