Detailed Description

MeshViz Extracted curvilinear surface mesh abstract interface.

A Curvilinear Surface mesh is similar to a MiMeshIJ except that nodes are organized in a (NUMI+1,NUMJ+1) array where they can be accessed by (i,j) indices. So each node located inside the mesh (not on a border) is shared by four cells. However, the nodes are not evenly spaced as they can be in the MiSurfaceMeshRectilinear or MiSurfaceMeshRegular.

Note:
Notice that, the virtual methods are the same as in the parent class. The RTTI system is used by some extraction algorithms to identify the mesh type in order to implement some specific optimization based on the properties described above.

Member Function Documentation

virtual const MeXGeometryIj& MeXSurfaceMeshCurvilinear::getGeometry (  )  const [pure virtual]

Returns the geometry of this mesh.

Implements MiSurfaceMeshCurvilinear.

virtual const MeXSurfaceMeshCurvilinear* MeXSurfaceMeshCurvilinear::getNewClone (  )  const [inline, virtual]

Gets a new clone of this mesh. This method creates and returns a new instance of the class of this object by copying all fields of this instance. The application is responsible for deleting the new instance returned. This method is not pure virtual because it is not always necessary to get a copy of a mesh. However the mesh instances returned by any extraction method are always cloneable. By default this method throws an exception of type MiAbstractMethodError.

Reimplemented from MiSurfaceMeshCurvilinear.
