Shapes¶
modepy.shapes
provides a generic description of the supported shapes
(i.e. reference elements).

class
modepy.
Face
(volume_shape, face_index, volume_vertex_indices, map_to_volume)¶ Mixin to be used with a concrete
Shape
subclass to represent geometry information about a face of a shape.
face_index
¶ The face index in
volume_shape
of this face.

volume_vertex_indices
¶ A tuple of indices into the vertices returned by
unit_vertices_for_shape()
for thevolume_shape
.

map_to_volume
¶ A
Callable
that takes an array of size (dim, nnodes) of unit nodes on the face represented by face_vertices and maps them to thevolume_shape
.

(squint, and it might start making sense…)
Vertices in biunit coordinates \((r, s, t)\):

A = (1, 1, 1)
B = ( 1, 1, 1)
C = (1, 1, 1)
D = (1, 1, 1)
Vertices in equilateral coordinates \((x, y, z)\):

A = (1, 1/sqrt(3), 1/sqrt(6))
B = ( 1, 1/sqrt(3), 1/sqrt(6))

Hypercubes¶

Hypercube

Coordinates on the square¶
Biunit coordinates on \((r, s)\) (also called ‘unit’ coordinates):

Vertices in biunit coordinates:

A = (1, 1)
B = ( 1, 1)
C = (1, 1)
D = ( 1, 1)
Coordinates on the cube¶

v r
Vertices in biunit coordinates:
O = ( 0, 0, 0)
A = (1, 1, 1)
B = ( 1, 1, 1)
C = (1, 1, 1)
D = ( 1, 1, 1)
E = (1, 1, 1)
F = ( 1, 1, 1)
G = (1, 1, 1)
H = ( 1, 1, 1)
The order of the vertices in the hypercubes follows binary counting
in tsr
(i.e. in reverse axis order).
For example, in 3D, A, B, C, D, ...
is 000, 001, 010, 011, ...
.
Submeshes¶

submesh_for_shape
(shape, node_tuples)¶ 
modepy.
submesh_for_shape
(shape, node_tuples) 
modepy.
submesh_for_shape
(shape, node_tuples) Return a list of tuples of indices into the node list that generate a tesselation of the reference element.
 Parameters
node_tuples –
A list of tuples (i, j, …) of integers indicating node positions inside the unit element. The returned list references indices in this list.
modepy.node_tuples_for_space()
may be used to generate node_tuples.shape (modepy.shapes.Shape) –
