Transform: mesh transformation module
Preamble
Transform module performs simple transformations of meshes. It works on arrays (as defined in Converter documentation) or on CGNS/Python trees (pyTrees), if they provide grid coordinates. In the pyTree version, flow solution nodes and boundary conditions and grid connectivity are preserved if possible. In particular, splitting a mesh does not maintain the grid connectivity.
This module is part of Cassiopee, a free opensource pre and postprocessor for CFD simulations.
To use the module with the Converter.array interface:
import Transform as T
To use the module with the CGNS/Python interface:
import Transform.PyTree as T

Parameters:  a ([array, list of arrays] or [zone, list of zones, base, pyTree]) – input data

reorder
(a, dest) For a structured grid, change the (i,j,k) ordering of a. To reorder a mesh (i,j,k) into (i2,j2,k2), the transformation can be achieved through a matrix M, filled with a single nonzero value per line and column (equal to 1 or 1). dest=(desti,destj,destk) means: M[abs(desti),1]=sign(desti); M[abs(destj),2]=sign(destj); M[abs(destk),3]=sign(destk)
For an unstructured 2D grid (TRI, QUAD, 2D NGON), order the normals such that they are all oriented towards the same direction.
