Stride

Applies to: Curves

Summary: Mesh a curve with node spacing based on a general field function.

Syntax:

Curve <range> Scheme Stride

Discussion:

The ability to specify the number and location of nodes based on a general field function is also available in Trelis. With this capability the node locations along a curve can be determined by some field variable (e.g. an error measure). This provides a means of using Trelis in adaptive analyses. To use this capability, a sizing function must have been read in and associated to the geometry (See Exodus II -based field function for more information on this process). After a sizing function is made available, the stride scheme can be used to mesh the curves.
