Possibility to extract information about boundary edges and faces

If you need the boundary edges or the faces of surface elements or volume elements you can do it in several ways:

  • Give a mesh criteria of type "mesh" to the lines or surfaces that are the boundaries of your surface or body. After generation, you will have linear or triangle or quadrilateral elements apart from the main ones.
  • Assign a condition "over face elems" to the line or surface that is the boundary. You can then list the element faces with this condition in the '.bas' file with the order *globalnodes or *localnodes.
