OOF2: The Manual
Subclasses are listed as they appear in the GUI and (in parentheses) as they appear in scripts.
Entire Mesh (
EntireMesh) -- Use the entire Mesh as a post-processing domain.
Single Point (
SinglePoint) -- Use a single point for the post-processing domain.
Pixel Group (
PixelGroup) -- Use a pixel group as a post-processing domain.
Cross Section (
CrossSectionDomain) -- Use a Mesh cross section as the post-processing domain.
Edge Boundary (
SkeletonEdgeBoundaryDomain) -- Use a Skeleton edge boundary as the post-processing domain.
Point Boundary (
SkeletonPointBoundaryDomain) -- Use a Skeleton point boundary as the post-processing domain.
Element Group (
ElementGroup) -- Use an element group as the post-processing domain.
Domain objects are part of the
post-solution analysis framework, in which useful data is
extracted from the mesh. You select an operation (like OOF.Mesh.Analyze.Direct_Output, if you want
to see the data, or OOF.Mesh.Analyze.Average), a
Domain, and a Sampling.
Domain is the subset of the
which the sampling is applied. All the samples thus generated
will lie within the domain, or in some cases within the domain's
All domains are ways of specifying an area on the mesh, and differ in how this area is specified. You may select an element group selection, a pixel group or selection, a cross section, or the entire mesh. Exactly how the domain is interpreted by the output operation depends on the sampling.
