45th shape file -rectangular hole in a rectangular plate, by users equations.

The inner rectangle has sides 0.2 and 0.05 (sx and sy), while the outer has 1 and 0.5 (Sx and Sy).

Consider first the right hand sides of the electrode.

The equations, say g1(x,y,z), for the inner edge at x = sx are

x = sx, y = sy*tan(phi), z = 0, where phi = 0 to pi/4 (allowing for the symmetry planes).

The equations, say g2(x,y,z), for the outer edge at Sx = 0.5 are

x = Sx, y = Sy*tan(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^n instead of f and in the present example n = 1.5.

The x=0 symmetry plane reflects this shape to the left-hand side.

A second analogous electrode completes the simulation.
