I put my code at:
Let's discuss how to best integrate it in sfepy. The main code is in:
which converts to/from a lot of formats. It's quite long though and all in one class. My plan was to create a new class for each output/input format.
So let's create some basic mesh classes, for example based on the code in sfe/fem/mesh.py. Then I'll just subclass it, implement some output/input and that's it.
Another problem: how can I select some part of the geometry and assign a special boundary condition to it? In sfepy, as I understand it, it's handled by assigning a special number to each element (tetrahedron), but how can I generate such a mesh? It's not a business of sfepy. But generally I need to create a geometry (for example in gmsh), tell gmsh to mark some surface with a number. Then it is passed to tetgen, that is clever enough to assign this number to each element in the output. So all I need is to parse the output of tetgen and print the element numbers to a file for example.
Sometimes, I not only need the element IDs, but I also need the set of nodes sitting at a surface. All these features are implemented in the patch attached to the issue 17.
In my older FEM code, I simply read this file and assigned a correct BC to the elements in this file. How is this handled by sfepy?
I think sfepy can do some things that is in the patch, but probably cannot do all of them. So let's merge it. I am waiting for your suggestions and ideas. ;)
