Shap3d25.dat, 24th 'shape' file for CPO3D
A spherical cap with a rectangular hole, and the program for generating it.
Superseeded by shap3d53, with users equations
(although it might still be useful if the electrode is to be re-oriented)
The program for producing this data file is called prog25.f90.
See also prog25.f90.
To run the program simply type 'prog25' as a command line.
Before doing that, set up the data file that is read by prog25. This data file is called 'tempin.dat'.
At present it contains:
2. ! =radius of sphere
0.5 ! =z of centre of bounding circle
1.5 0.5 ! =x,y of a corner of the rectangular hole
400 ! =approximate total number of subdivisions
1 ! =voltage number
y ! the x=0 plane is a symmetry plane in the main CPO3D program (y/n)
y ! the y=0 plane is a symmetry plane in the main CPO3D program (y/n)
A read-only version of this is saved as 'prog25.dat'.
It is assumed here that:
(1) the centre of the sphere is at the origin,
(2) the centre of the rectangular hole is on the z axis.
In general these assuptions are not correct and so the resulting object will have to be shifted and/or rotated, as explained below.
After setting up tempin.dat and running prog25, a set of electrode data can be found in 'tempout.dat'.
These data should be copied and then pasted into a primary data file for CPO3D.
The 'transform' option should then be used to shift and/or rotate the object.
Finally the data for the object can be copied and pasted into the primary data file that deals with the complete system.
