Syntax

[E_HEX20,V_HEX20,V_HEX20_cell,Fb_HEX20,Fb_HEX20_QUAD8]=hex8_hex20(E_HEX8,V_HEX8,V_HEX8_cell,Fb_HEX8);

Description

The hex8_hex20 converts 4-node tetrahedral elements to 10-node tetrahedral elements.

Examples

clear; close all; clc;

% Plot settings
fontSize=15;
faceAlpha=0.5;
edgeColor='k';
edgeWidth1=2;
edgeWidth2=1;
markerSize1=75;
markerSize2=10;

CONVERSION FROM HEX8 TO HEX20, EXAMPLE FOR A SINGLE HEXAHEDRON

Creating a single 4-node HEXAHEDRON

[V8,~]=platonic_solid(2,1); %q indicates solid type, r is the radius
HEX8=[1:8];
[F8,~]=element2patch(HEX8,[],'hex8');

Converting to a single 10-node HEXAHEDRON

[HEX20,V20,~]=hex8_hex20(HEX8,V8,{});
[F20,~]=element2patch(HEX20,[],'hex20');

Plotting elements

CONVERSION FROM HEX8 TO HEX20, EXAMPLE FOR A HEXAHEDRON MESH WITH NODAL PARAMETERS

n=3;
for q=1:1:n
    [HEX8,V8]=subHex(HEX8,V8,1);
end

[F8,~]=element2patch(HEX8,[],'hex8');

%Create nodal result e.g. displacement and color
V4d=V8;
