block finite-element keyword <range>

Primary keywords:

Operate on finite element blocks.

create fx fy fz

Generates an FE mesh inside an 8-vertex brick block. fx, fy, and fz are desired element sizes in the $$x$$-, $$y$$- and $$z$$-directions. The number of elements along each of the element axes is calculated using the value for the nearest coordinate direction.

import keyword ...

Import an FE mesh.

filename s

Import an FE mesh from the file named s.

num-nodes
list keyword

List information about finite element blocks.

extra

List extra variable information stored with blocks.

group

List FE block groups.

List finite element link information.
