Format of OS files

Recommended Posts

According to the FEKO user manual, the os file ( surface current density) format is  following:

 

Num X Y Z Re(Jx) Im(Jx) Re(Jy) Im(Jy) Re(Jz) Im(Jz) ...
... Abs(Jcorn1) Abs(Jcorn2) Abs(Jcorn3) ...
... Re(Jx_c1) Im(Jx_c1) Re(Jy_c1) Im(Jy_c1) Re(Jz_c1) Im(Jz_c1) ...
... Re(Jx_c2) Im(Jx_c2) Re(Jy_c2) Im(Jy_c2) Re(Jz_c2) Im(Jz_c2) ...
... Re(Jx_c3) Im(Jx_c3) Re(Jy_c3) Im(Jy_c3) Re(Jz_c3) Im(Jz_c3)

 

My question is  what does  c1,c2,c3 means ?  The current at three corners of triangles?  The X Y Z value seems to be the center of triangle( i checked with mesh file) . 

 

if they corners of triangles , how to determine their coordinates. Does any one have a clue ?

 

Thanks.

Dear Cris

 

Yes, c1, c2 and c3 refers to corner1, corner2 and corner3.

 

The locations of the corners can be written to the FEKO *.out file using the "Export to the FEKO *.out file" option for Geometry under the General tab of the Solver settings in CADFEKO.

 

Your FEKO *.out file should then contain a section such as below:

          medium     x3 in m     y3 in m     z3 in m

          Free s   1.0000E+00  0.0000E+00  1.0000E+00

In the above corner1 is given by (x1,y1,z1), corner2 by (x2,y2,z2) etc.

Dear John, 

 

Thanks. By looking at the out file, i can find the corrdinates for each corner of a triangle,  However, something is strange when it comes to the OS file.  

As you can see from the out file, the second corner of trinagle 1 is also the second corner of triangle 2, but in the OS file , the electric current density at corner 2  of triangle1 and 2 are different. This doesn't make sense to me, they are at the same position, so their current density should be the same.
