SIMULATING BOUNDARY CURVES

%Boundary 3

[x,y] = pol2cart(t,r);

CREATING MULTI-REGION MESHES

The first step is to define regions. Regions are defined as cell entries. for instance a cell called regionSpec. Each entry in regionSpec defines a region i.e. region 1 is found in regionSpec{1}. Each region entry is itself also a cell array containing all the boundary curves, e.g. for a two curve region 1 we would have something like regionSpec{1}={V1,V2} where V1 and V2 are the boundary curves. Multiple curves may be given here. The first curve should form the outer boundary of the entire region, the curves that follow should define holes inside this boundary and the material inside them is therefore not meshed. The boundary vertices for regions that share boundaries are merged and will share these boundary vertices. The function output contains the triangular faces in F, the vertices in V and the per triangle region indices in regionInd.

%Defining 4 regions
regionSpec{1}={V1,V2}; %A region between V1 and V2 (V2 forms a hole inside V1)
regionSpec{2}={V2,V3,V4,V5,V6}; %A region bound by V2 containing a set of holes defined by V3 up to V6
regionSpec{3}={V5}; %A region bound by V5
regionSpec{4}={V6}; %A region bound by V6
plotOn=1; %This turns on/off plotting

%Desired point spacing
pointSpacing=0.6;

[F,V,regionInd]=multiRegionTriMesh2D(regionSpec,pointSpacing,1,plotOn);
plotV(V1,'b-','LineWidth',2);
plotV(V2,'b-','LineWidth',2);
plotV(V3,'b-','LineWidth',2);
plotV(V4,'b-','LineWidth',2);
plotV(V5,'b-','LineWidth',2);
plotV(V6,'b-','LineWidth',2);
