Triangle quality measure
THIS PAGE DESCRIBES
THE LEGACY WORKFLOW. New features might not be
compatible with the legacy workflow. For the corresponding step in
the recommended workflow, see
q = pdetriq(p,t)
q = pdetriq(p,t) returns
a triangle quality measure given mesh data.
The triangular mesh is given by the mesh data
t. For details on the mesh data representation,
The triangle quality is given by the formula
where a is the area and h1, h2, and h3 the side lengths of the triangle.
If q > 0.6 the triangle is of acceptable quality. q = 1 when h1 = h2 = h3.
