OOF2: The Manual


Domain — A specified region of Mesh or its Microstructure for sampling.


Subclasses are listed as they appear in the GUI and (in parentheses) as they appear in scripts.


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.

The Domain is the subset of the Mesh to which the sampling is applied. All the samples thus generated will lie within the domain, or in some cases within the domain's bounding box.

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.
