This document is a tutorial on the Gmsh mesh generator. It is aimed towards complete beginners; only some ba- sic knowledge of the Linux. This list is for questions and discussions about Gmsh features, resources, bugs, and so forth. Useful links: Gmsh homepage (for documentation, downloads, etc.) . Gmsh is a finite-element mesh generator developed by Christophe Geuzaine and Gmsh website · Official Gmsh Documentation · Gmsh Tutorials by Dolfyn.

The format of the input file is: Middle mouse button zoom acceleration factor Default value: An additional parameter defines the top X extent zero by default. Modify the prescribed mesh element size of the points whose tags are listed in expression-list. Precision documentatioon X3D output Default value: The number of components must be given max. GetString allows to get a ONELAB string value the second optional argument is the default value dcumentation if the variable does not exist.

Trace the resulting co chains to the given physical groups. Plugin ExtractEdges creates one new view. Minimum model coordinate along the Z-axis read-only Default value: Copy meshing documenfation unstructured or transfinite when duplicating geometrical entities? You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code.

They have to be given either in the GUI or on the command line see Running Gmsh on your systemand Command-line options. Computes the union of the object and the tool and assign the result the tag expression. High-quality surface remeshing using harmonic maps. Length scale is bilinearly interpolated betweenthese locations inner and outer radiuses, endpoints 1 and 2 The field values for a point P are given by: The IGE measure is related to the error on the gradient of the finite element solution.


The expression-list should contain three expression s giving the X, Y, and Z coordinates of the center of the homothetic transformation.

For example, if you distribute copies of Gmsh, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. Post-processing functions include section computation, offset, elevation, boundary and component extraction, color map and range modification, animation, vector graphic output, etc.

If coord1 respectively coord2 is negative, the position is measured from the right respectively bottom edge of the window. Use hyperbolic sheet away from trackball center for z-rotations Default value: For example, in three dimensions, the triangles discretizing a surface will be forced to be faces of tetrahedra in the final 3D mesh only if the surface is part of the boundary of a volume; the line elements discretizing a curve will be forced to be edges of tetrahedra in the final 3D mesh only if the curve is part of the boundary of a surface, itself part of the boundary of a volume; a single node discretizing a point in the middle of a volume will be forced to be a node of one of the tetrahedra in the final 3D mesh only if this point is connected to a curve, itself part of the boundary of a surface, itself part of the boundary of a volume.

Gmsh Reference Manual

Vertical position in pixels of the upper left corner of the manipulator window Default value: High quality surface remeshing using harmonic maps. Plugin Distance computes distances to physical entities in a mesh.

Clip whole elements Default value: Extrudes both the geometry and the mesh using a combined translation and rotation see Extrusions. Affine takes a 4 x 4 or 4 x 3 affine transformation matrix given by row; Translate takes the 3 components of the translation as in Transformations.

Gmsh – Wikipedia

Delivered by Mailman version 2. This is also a hidden list, which means that the list of members is available only to the list administrator.

Minimum Z-axis coordinate Default value: GetEnvThe gets the value of an environment variable from the operating system.


Options peculiar to post-processing views take two forms. Draw simplified model while rotating, panning and zooming Default value: Find searches for occurrences of the first expression in the second both of which can be lists.

The element is then divided using that node.

StrPrefix and StrRelative permit to take the prefix e. Hide all entities, if General. Gmsh build options read-only Default value: Optimal parametrizations for surface remeshing. By default in the MSH file format see File formatsif physical groups are defined, the output mesh only documenttation those elements that belong to at least one physical group.

GetDP: a General Environment for the Treatment of Discrete Problems

General toolsUp: Compute the maximum eigenvalue of the Hessian matrix of Field[IField], with the gradients evaluated by finite differences: AutoCoherence is set to zero see Geometry options list. Creates a new post-processing view, named ” string “. The first expression-list is a list of dimensions whose homology bases are computed; if empty, all bases are computed. The next two cases permit to reference an expression sublist whose elements are those corresponding to the indices provided by the expression-list.

Character expressionsPrevious: Size in pixels of small axes Default value: Width in pixels of the generic extra window Default value: This behaviour can be changed with the Geometry. The value of this field is VIn inside a spherical ball, VOut outside. International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering 69 4pp. Sets the mesh color of the entities in expression-list to color-expression.

Creates a path made of curves. Format see General options list.
