DMDAGetElements#

Gets an array containing the indices (in local indexing) of all the local elements

Synopsis#

#include "petscdmda.h"   
PetscErrorCode DMDAGetElements(DM dm, PetscInt *nel, PetscInt *nen, const PetscInt *e[])

Not Collective

Input Parameter#

  • dm - the DMDA object

Output Parameters#

  • nel - number of local elements

  • nen - number of nodes in each element (for example in one dimension it is 2, in two dimensions it is 3 (for DMDA_ELEMENT_P1) and 4 (for DMDA_ELEMENT_Q1)

  • e - the local indices of the elements’ vertices

Notes#

Call DMDARestoreElements() once you have finished accessing the elements.

Each process uniquely owns a subset of the elements. That is no element is owned by two or more processes.

If on each process you integrate over its owned elements and use ADD_VALUES in Vec/MatSetValuesLocal() then you’ll obtain the correct result.

Fortran Note#

Use

   PetscScalar, pointer :: e(:)

to declare the element array
