Generate MSC.Marc FE hexahedral mesh from geom file.
> mentat_spectralBox options [geomfile(s)]
- connect to Mentat via given connection port
> mentat_spectralBox --port 40007 micro.geom
This example demonstrates the mesh generation and initial condition setup performed by the script.
The geometry (Figure 1
(a)) is taken from micro.geom
and passed to MSC.Mentat (Figure 1
connects to a MSC.Menat instance listening on (standard) port 40007.
(a) Eight (periodic) grains discretized with 16 by 16 by 8 voxels as specified in micro.geom.
(b) MSC.Mentat view of processed micro.geom. Colors highlight element sets used for assignment of initial conditions, i.e., homogenization index and microstructure index.
