TET_MESH_ORDER20 is a data directory which contains examples of 20-node "tet meshes" (meshes of tetrahedrons). In such a mesh, the fundamental shape is a tetrahedron, but each tetrahedron is described by 20 nodes, namely, the four vertices, and 12 midside nodes, and 4 mid face nodes.
The definition of an order 10 tet mesh requires two files:
There is little agreement about how to order the nodes that describe a 20-node tetrahedron. The first four nodes are always the vertices.
Assuming the vertices are A, B, C and D, Gmsh uses the following ordering:
1: a 2: b 3: c 4: d 5: (2*a +b )/3 6: ( a+2*b )/3 7: ( 2*b+ c )/3 8: ( b+2*c )/3 9: ( a +2*c )/3 10: (2*a + c )/3 11: (2*a + d)/3 12: ( a +2*d)/3 13: ( b +2*d)/3 14: ( 2*b + d)/3 15: ( + c+2*d)/3 16: ( +2*c+ d)/3 17: ( a+ b+ c )/3 18: ( a+ b + d)/3 19: ( b+ c+ d)/3 20: ( a+ c+ d)/3
Leo Rebholz used the following ordering:
1: a 2: b 3: c 4: d 5: (2*a +b )/3 6: (2*a + c )/3 7: ( a+2*b )/3 8: ( a +2*c )/3 9: ( a+ b+ c )/3 10: ( 2*b+ c )/3 11: ( b+2*c )/3 12: (2*a + d)/3 13: ( 2*b + d)/3 14: ( +2*c+ d)/3 15: ( a+ b + d)/3 16: ( b+ c+ d)/3 17: ( a+ c+ d)/3 18: ( a +2*d)/3 19: ( b +2*d)/3 20: ( + c+2*d)/3
