Hi All,
Please find attached a patch to sfepy/fem/meshio.py for basic read
support for MED format meshes. I'm attaching the patch here since
github seems to be down in the US. MED is the native mesh format for
the very powerful open-source meshing tools salome [1] and pythonocc
[2].
Actually, it is very incomplete, but seems to work with the provided
example mesh (Mesh_1.med). I only tried loading the mesh with
postproc.py, so I haven't run any calculations on it yet (I assume
that should work ok). So far, it only supports 3D 8-node hexahedral
elements, so I suppose it is more of an example of reading the format
than an actual final production code. :) I hope it can be generalized
to work with more MED meshes.
I found some French documentation on MED in the source packages at
[1]; I used google docs to translate it to English, so if someone
wants a copy of that, let me know. I'm looking for a better English
version of these docs.
Best regards,
Logan

Hi All,
The developer guide [1] now contains info on our doctring standard + info on
how to introduce yourself properly to git:
Introduce yourself to git and make (optionally) some handy aliases either in
.gitconfig in your home directory (global setting for all your git projects),
or directly in .git/config in the repository:
[user]
email = ma...(a)mail.org
name = Name Surname
[color]
ui = auto
interactive = true
[alias]
ci = commit
di = diff --color-words
st = status
co = checkout

Hi,
To address issue 125 [0], I have refactored integrals and quadratures, see [1].
Now it remains to write some tests into tests/test_quadratures.py, and add more
quadratures.
it resulted in:
- much simpler code
- quadratures can now be easily added
- integral 'family' is just an arbitrary name given by user
[2] was updated, too - quadratures.py, intergrals.py were added to sfepy.fem
package section.
Bug reports welcome!

FYI: the debug() function [1] was significantly improved - it uses IPython/ipdb
if those are available, so you get colors, tab completion and all that fancy
stuff while debugging.

Dear sfepy-devel group,
I have read with interest the home website of the sfepy project. I
would like to give it a try, however I have a question about mesh
generation. I am downloading Mayavi2 at the moment. As far as I know
it is the best front end to generate and visualise VTK files. However,
I would like to know if you have a better suggestion for a 'free' mesh
generator software.
regards,
David

Hi Robert,
>From a given configuration file, I think I am able to extract the
Jacobian (called the "tangent matrix" in the code) and the right-hand
side as follows:
def get_problem(fName=__file__):
"""
Read the configuration specified in the file specified in argument
(the present file by default) and return an initialized problem
constructed from it along with an initial state vector.
"""
from sfepy.base.conf import ProblemConf, get_standard_keywords
from sfepy.fem import eval_term_op, ProblemDefinition
required, other = get_standard_keywords()
# Use this file as the input file to gather configuration.
conf = ProblemConf.from_file(fName, required, other)
# Create a ProblemDefinition instance from current configuration.
problem = ProblemDefinition.from_conf(conf,
init_variables=True,
init_equations=True)
state = problem.create_state_vector()
problem.init_variables(state)
problem.time_update(None)
return (problem, state)
def get_jacobian(problem, state=None):
"""
Return the Jacobian matrix of the system in SciPy CSR format.
Input arguments are as returned by `get_problem()`.
"""
# Instantiate a problem evaluator.
evaluator = problem.get_evaluator(mtx=problem.mtx_a)
if state is None:
state = problem.create_state_vector()
jac = evaluator.eval_tangent_matrix(state)
return jac
Am I missing anything here (e.g., I'm not sure the BCs and ICs are
taken into account)?
Now I'd like to extract the contribution of a particular equation to
this Jacobian. How can I do that? This is what I've tried but it seems
to return the whole Jacobian:
def get_equation_jacobian(problem, equation, state=None):
"""
Return the Jacobian matrix of a specific equation in SciPy CSR
format.
"""
from sfepy.fem.evaluate import assemble_matrix
evaluator = problem.get_evaluator(mtx=problem.mtx_a)
if state is None:
state = problem.create_state_vector()
problem.variables.data_from_state(state)
jac = problem.mtx_a
jac = assemble_matrix(jac, equation,
problem.variables, problem.materials,
**evaluator.data)
return jac
In fact, this function returns None, but problem.mtx_a contains the
entire Jacobian. I suppose I should specify a different matrix when I
instantiate the evaluator, but where can I discover its size?
Thanks!
Dominique

Just a little reminder: there is also the sfepy-issues mailing list, which
reports automatically any changes of the issues (new issues, updates, comments
etc.). Often the comments can help you solve some problem, so you may want to
join that list too, if you read this one - it complements the information given
here.

Hi there,
I'm experimenting with a mixed finite element formulation of the
Poisson equation to become more familiar with the terms in SfePy. The
equations are
int( v . grad(p) ) + int ( f p ) = 0,
int( c u div(q) ) = int( v . q ),
where u is a scalar unknown, v is a vector unknown, p is a scalar test
function and q is a vector test function.
I'm getting the error message:
IndexError: material(s) "v" not found!
My code is as follows:
material_1 = {
'name' : 'coef',
'region' : 'Omega',
'values' : {'val' : 1.0},

}
field_2 = {
'name' : 'grad_temperature',
'dim' : (2,1),

}
variable_1 = {

}
