Gmsh pre and post processing option available for Tochnog
We are pleased to announce that collaboration between Roman Putanowicz and Fernando Lorenzo have resulted in now being able to offer the use of Gmsh, and Open Source, Free Pre and Post Processing option for Tochnog. If you search for gmsh or go to http://gmsh.info you will find the link.
At this moment, to get the version that works with Tochnog, you must download the Development version, with the same code being included in future stable versions.
◦ automated nightly snapshots (dashboard): Windows 32 bit / 64 bit, Linux 32 bit / 64 bit, Mac OS X and source code
As you can see, you can download binary versions for Windows, Linux or Mac OS X or the source code and you can build it yourself.
This is a major step for Tochnog as it now incorporates the ability to use Gmsh for building much more complex, professional meshes, the ability of defining multiple materials and any boundary conditions with Gmsh.
Post processing is available with the use of an AWK script written by Osman Buyukisik several years ago. A copy of the AWK script mkgmsh.awk is included with this announcement.
We are now in the process of building the option for Tochnog to write the Gmsh Post processing file directly. We will be announcing when the option becomes available.
We hope that you enjoy this new option, an option that we believe, no doubt, it will help Tochnog to increase by users that are looking for an excellent Multi-Physics Finite Element application which now, in addition to the long existing GiD option, it offers the option to use an excellent Free Open source option.
Let’s spread the word and help keep Tochnog alive.
