PetscErrorCode DMPlexCreateWedgeBoxMesh(MPI_Comm comm, const PetscInt faces[], const PetscReal lower[], const PetscReal upper[], const DMBoundaryType periodicity[], PetscBool orderHeight, PetscBool interpolate, DM *dm)


Input Parameters#

  • comm - The communicator for the DM object

  • faces - Number of faces per dimension, or NULL for (1, 1, 1)

  • lower - The lower left corner, or NULL for (0, 0, 0)

  • upper - The upper right corner, or NULL for (1, 1, 1)

  • periodicity - The boundary type for the X,Y,Z direction, or NULL for DM_BOUNDARY_NONE

  • orderHeight - If PETSC_TRUE, orders the extruded cells in the height first. Otherwise, orders the cell on the layers first

  • interpolate - Flag to create intermediate mesh pieces (edges, faces)

Output Parameter#

  • dm - The DM object
