Sets point types and material regions by calling surfset and regset routines. ** ** Generate constraint table. The material (imt1) attribute is set based on the mregion commands. Interior and external boundary nodes should be assigned to exactly one mregion; these nodes will be assigned an imt1 value that corresponds to the mregion. A node which is on an interface will be assigned to any mregion and will be given an imt1 value of “interface” (an integer equal to one more than the number of material regions.) Node types are assigned based on whether a node is on a surface and what type the surface(s) is.
This command must be executed before connect.
This allows one to set the imt values of nodes without getting any nodes labeled imt=interface. This is useful if you do not want settets to create parent child chains at interface points. The actual imt value given may be determined by roundoff error so should not be used in cases where there are a large number of interface points. It is useful for setting imt values of an rzbrick mesh in which interface points only occur due to the coincidental point very near the geometry defining surface.
setpts /closed_surfaces /reflect
The closed_surfaces option works with geometries in which all regions and mregions are defined by closed surfaces. The nodes that fall on more than one surface are labeled as interface nodes. Nodes which fall on exactly one surface are labled external reflective boundary nodes. Nodes which are external boundary interface nodes are not labeled correctly and resetpts/itp must be called to correct the point types. An input file using the closed_surfaces option might look like:
