Shap3d39.dat, 39th 'shape' file for CPO3D

Square hole in a round disc, by users equation.


For information on the option for users equations, see users equations.

The equations, say g1(x,y,z), for the inner square edge are

x = s, y = s*tan(phi), z = 0, where phi = 0 to pi/4.

The equations, say g2(x,y,z), for the outer circular edge are

x = r*cos(phi), y = r*sin(phi), z = 0.

In the usual fashion we can combine these by using the general equation

g(x,y,z) = (1 - f)*g1 + f*g2,

where f goes from 0 to 1.

This reproduces g1 when f = 0, and g2 when f = 1.

To concentrate the segments near the inner edge, we can use f^2 instead of f.


Here s = 0.25, r = 1, and 3 symmetry planes are used.


The equations, as they appear in the data file, are:

f 0 1 name of variable number 1 and its limits

phi 0 0.785 name of variable number 2 and its limits

r 1 name of parameter number 1 and its fixed value

s 0.25 name of parameter number 2 and its fixed value

0 name of parameter number 3 and its fixed value

0 name of parameter number 4 and its fixed value




1 1 numbers of 2 applied voltages (can be same)

10 10 numbers of subdivisions of variables 1 and 2

(The program has corrected the less accurate value that was entered for pi/4.)
