fec

pseudo-color plot of a function defined on a triangular mesh

Calling Sequence

fec(x,y,triangles,func,<opt_args>)
fec(x,y,triangles,func,[strf,leg,rect,nax,zminmax,colminmax,colout,mesh])

Arguments

x,y

two vectors of size n, (x(i),y(i)) gives the coordinates of node i

func

a vector of size n : func(i) gives the value at node i of the function for which we want the pseudo-color plot.

triangles

is a [Ntr,5] matrix. Each line of triangles specifies a triangle of the mesh triangle(j) = [number,node1,node2,node3,flag]. node1,node2,node3 are the number of the nodes which constitutes the triangle. number is the number of the triangle and flag is an integer not used in the fec function

<opt_args>

This represents a sequence of statements key1=value1, key2=value2,... where key1, key2,... can be one of the following: strf, leg, rect, nax, zminmax, colminmax, colout, mesh (see plot2d for the 4 first ones).

strf,leg,rect,nax

see plot2d

zminmax

vector with 2 components [zmin zmax] (useful in particular for animation)

colminmax

vector of 2 positives integers [colmin colmax]

colout

vector of 2 integers [under_min_col upper_max_col]

mesh

boolean scalar, default value %f (must be true if you want also display the mesh)

Description

This function is the good one to draw linear triangular finite element solutions or simply to display a function defined on a triangulation. The color interpolation is done through software computation and so it is not too fast.

The function colorbar may be used to see the color scale (see the example section).

The zminmax argument gives the z values associated with the first and the last color (of the current colormap). More exactly if the colormap have nc colors and if we note dz = (zmax-zmin)/nc, then the part of the triangulation where zmin + (i-1)dz <= z < zmin + i dz is filled with the color i). By default zmin = min(func) and zmax = max(func). If you want to do an animation with func values that varie in time, take for zmin and zmax the global minimum and maximum or something close.

The colout argument lets the user choosing the colors for the 2 extremes regions {func < zmin} and {func > zmax}, under_min_col and upper_max_col may be equal (independantly) to:

-1

in this case the same color than in the neighbouring zone is used (CAUTION: you do not see that the corresponding limit is crossed), this is the default case.

0

in this case the extreme region is not painting at all.

k

(k being a valid index to a color of the current colormap) the extreme region is painting in color k.

If you do not want to use the complete colormap you may use the colminmax argument with 1 <= colmin < colmax <= nc (nc being the number of colors of the current colormap) so as to use only the [colmin,colmax] sub-part of the colormap. (by default all the colors of the colormap are used).

See the demo files demos/fec:

fec.ex1 is a simple demo file in which a mesh and a function on that mesh is completely built in Scilab syntax

fec.ex2 is an example for which the mesh and the function value where computed by an external mesh builder (amdba type mesh) and an external program. A set of macros ( provided in file macros.sci) can be used to read the data files in Scilab and plot the results.
