QUAD_MESH_RCM
Reverse CuthillMcKee Node Reordering
QUAD_MESH_RCM
is a C++ program which
computes the reverse CuthillMcKee (RCM) reordering for nodes in a mesh of 4node
quadrilaterals.
The user supplies a node file and an element file, containing
the coordinates of the nodes, and the indices of the nodes that
make up each element.
The program reads the data, computes the adjacency information,
carries out the RCM algorithm to get the permutation, applies
the permutation to the nodes and elements, and writes out
new node and element files that correspond to the RCM permutation.
(Note that, internally, the program has to convert some data from
0based to 1based indexing in order to work with the RCM codes.
Aside from some inelegant coding, the user should not notice any
effects of this temporary adjustment.)
Usage:
quad_mesh_rcm 'prefix'
where 'prefix' is the common file prefix:

'prefix'_nodes.txt, the node coordinates;

'prefix'_elements.txt, the element definitions.

'prefix'_rcm_nodes.txt, the reordered node coordinates;

'prefix'_rcm_elements.txt, the reordered element definitions.
