Description :

The function expects U to be a row vector. If U is a scalar field, then gf\_plot(mf,U) will fill the mesh with colors representing the values of U. If U is a vector field, then the default behavior of gf_plot is to draw vectors representing the values of U.

On output, this function returns the handles to the various graphical objects created: hmesh is the handles to the mesh lines, hbound is the handles to the edges of the boundaries, hfill is the handle of the patch objects of faces, hvert (resp hconv, hdof) is the handles of the vertices (resp. convexes, dof) labels.

For example, plotting a scalar field on the border of a 3D mesh can be done with

% load the 'strange.mesh_fem' (found in the getfem_matlab/tests directory)
mf=gf_mesh_fem('load', 'strange.mesh_fem')
U=rand(1, gf_mesh_fem_get(mf, 'nbdof')); # random field that will be drawn
gf_plot(mf, U, 'refine', 25, 'cvlst', gf_mesh_get(mf,'outer faces'), 'mesh','on');

The options are specified as pairs of "option name"/"option value"

'color', []          : override the line color.
'dof_color', [1,0,0] : color of the markers for the degrees of freedom.
'width', 2           : line width.

Description :

This function plots a 1D finite elements field.

'convexes', {'off'|'on'}    : displays also convexes numbers.

Description :

This function can be used to plot mesh slices. It is also used by the gf_plot_mesh and gf_plot functions.

Example : consider that you have a 3D mesh_fem mf and a vector field U defined on this mesh_fem, solution of the Stokes problem in a tank (see the demo demo_stokes_3D_tank_draw.m in the tests directory).

% slice the mesh with two half spaces, and take the boundary of the resulting quarter-cylinder
Usl=gf_compute(pde.mf_u,U,'interpolate on', sl);  % interpolate the solution on the slice
% show the norm of the displacement on this slice

% another slice: now we take the lower part of the mesh
Usl=gf_compute(pde.mf_u,U,'interpolate on', sl);
hold on;

% this slice contains the transparent mesh faces displayed on the picture

% last step is to plot the streamlines
hh=[1 5 9 12.5 16 19.5]; % vertical position of the different starting points of the streamlines

% compute the streamlines
Utsl=gf_compute(pde.mf_u,U,'interpolate on', tsl);

% render them with "tube plot"
hold off;
% use a nice colormap
