`block zone generate-new`

command

Syntax

- block zone generate-new keyword <range>
Primary keywords:

flowzone-new gradation-surface gradation-volume maximum-edge minimum-edge number-control-points

Generate tetrahedral zones to fill blocks.

- flowzone-new b
Set b to on to use new trangulation logic for flow zones. This may be necessary for blocks with large zone size gradations. Default is on.

- gradation-surface f
- Rate at which, on the surface of blocks, neighboring triangle sizes vary as triangles increase or decrease in size due to local size adaptation.
This is a number from 0 to 1 with 0 being no gradation and 1 being maximum gradation.

- gradation-volume f
- Rate at which neighboring tetrahedra will increase in size away from the surface.
This is a number from 0 to 1 with 0 being no gradation and 1 being maximum gradation.

- maximum-edge f
Specify the maximum edge length for any tetra to be generated. The actual maximum edge length will be close to this, but the result is not guaranteed to be exact.

- minimum-edge f
Specify the minimum edge length for any tetra to be generated. The actual minimum edge length will be close to this, but the result is not guaranteed to be exact.

- number-control-points i
Specify the number of points on faces to which the specified edge size (

`block zone size`

) is specified. Increasing the number of control points produces a more uniform mesh. The default value is 5. See Generating Zones for an example.
