TET_MESH_Q2L is a C++ program which reads information describing a tet mesh of a set of points using 10-node ("quadratic") triangles, and creates a 4-node ("linear") tet mesh.
The same nodes are used, but each 10-node tetrahedron is broken up into 8 smaller 4-node tetrahedrons.

The input and output files use the simple TABLE format; comment lines begin with a "#" character. Otherwise, each line of the file contains one set of information, either the coordinates of a node (for a node file), or the indices of nodes that make up a tetrahedron, (for a tetrahedron file).
The input file tetras.txt contains the tetrahedron information for the 10-node tet mesh. Each line contains the indices of 10 nodes that form a tetrahedron, in a particular order. The first 4 indices are the vertices. Subsequent nodes can be described by the pair of vertices they lie between, as follows:
1 2 3 4 (1+2) (1+3) (1+4) (2+3) (2+4) (3+4)
The output file tetras.l2q.txt contains the tetrahedron information for the 4-node tet mesh.
