Hi Amit,
maybe I can help you there in some way. We have the problem that we need to import a three dimensional scalar field into GetDP, to do further calculations with it in an formulation (i.E. some for_v). Considering that one already has the temperature nodal values in the sorting that the mesh in GetDP uses, one can do the following:
Using the additions at the end of this mail to the normal formulation "for_v", one will find a hell lot of values 12345678 in the .pre file after an initial sole pre-processing step.
One moves the file to a new filename .ori.pre
Now, using a self programmed tool, one can replace the "funny" 12345678 values with the corresponding temperature values, as they have the same sorting as the mesh nodes, and recreates a .pre file. Then one invokes the calculation and dances happily around his computer.
I understand that this can be considered as ugly as ugly can be, however it works..
Otherwise, there exist an undocumented function ReadSolution (to be found in the source-code), where one would need to supply a self-created solution file.
In your case, I would propose you create a mesh file without gmesh, directly from you hexahedral mesh (being very careful about the volume orientation, and the nodal numbering) using self programmed software.
Although this methods require a lot of hand-work, and although GetDP has a quite steep learning curve, I still recommend using it. We are very happy about it, and have experienced calculation times about 70 times shorter than a similar calculation using FEMLab (transient 2D simulation o electron convection/dissipation within electric fields)...
Nice greetings from Vienna,
Bernhard

Hi,
I am trying to solve the heat equation in a 3D geometry. My thermal source is a result of optical power dissipation in a lossy material. This source term is calculated on a Cartesian grid using a different program. How can an import this source into my getdp problem ?
Thanks
Amit
