TET_MESH_RCM
Reverse CuthillMcKee Node Reordering
TET_MESH_RCM
is a FORTRAN90 program which
computes the reverse
CuthillMcKee reordering for nodes in a tetrahedral mesh ("tet mesh").
The user supplies a node file and a tetrahedron file, containing
the coordinates of the nodes, and the indices of the nodes that
make up each tetrahedron. Either 4node or 10node tetrahedrons may
be used.
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 tetrahedrons, and writes out
new node and tetrahedron files that correspond to the RCM permutation.
Note that the node file would normally contain exactly 3 values
on each line, namely the X, Y and Z coordinates of the nodes.
However, this is not necessary. Extra information can be
included on each line, for instance, a "W" coordinate. Each
line should include the same number of items, but all will be
permuted correctly together. The program does not actually
need to know the coordinates of the nodes, so in fact, ANY data
(as long as it is real numeric data) associated with the nodes
can be listed in the node file, and will be correctly permuted.
Usage:
tet_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.
