Examples

Converting a hexahedral element to tetrahedral elements

Creating an example hexahedral element

V=[0 0 0; 1 0 0; 1 1 0; 0 1 0; 0 0 1; 1 0 1; 1 1 1; 0 1 1;]; %nodes
E=1:8; %Element
[F,CF]=element2patch(E);  %Patch data for plotting

cFigure;
subplot(2,3,1); hold on;
title('Original element set','FontSize',fontSize);
gpatch(F,V,cMap(1,:),'k',1);
patchNormPlot(F,V,0.25);
colormap(cMap);
axisGeom(gca,fontSize);

for q=1:1:5

    % Subdeviding the hexahedral element
    convertMethod=q; %Corresponse
    [Es,Vs,Cs]=hex2tet(E,V,[],convertMethod);
    [Fs,CFs]=element2patch(Es); %Patch data for plotting

    subplot(2,3,q+1); hold on;
    title(['Converted, method: ',num2str(q)],'FontSize',fontSize);
    gpatch(Fs,Vs,cMap(q+1,:),'k',0.5);
    patchNormPlot(Fs,Vs,0.25);

    colormap(cMap);
    axisGeom(gca,fontSize);
end
