Abstract

Interpolate grid functions to grid arrays on a regular grid of locations, so that these can e.g. be output more easily.

1 Introduction

Some post-processing and visualisation tools cannot handle mesh refinement or multi-block systems. These tools then require interpolating the result onto a regular, uniform grid. This is what this thorn does.

InterpToArray can interpolate to 0D, 1D, 2D, and 3D grids. The interpolation result is stored in grid arrays. These can be either replicated or distributed over all processes. Note that using replicated (DISTRIB=constant) grid arrays can require a substantial amount of memory on each process.
