Dear Nicole,

You are using the Periodic line command the right way but because you are using the same mesh density on each node of the rectangle, you just don’t see the effect. Have a look on the attached file : by setting the mesh density of the first point to one tenth of the original density you can clearly see the command working.

Sincerely Yours,

Objet : [Gmsh] Periodic Line/Surface commands in Gmsh


I would like to understand the proper usage of Periodic Line and Periodic Surface in Gmsh. I have attached a Gmsh script file that shows my latest attempt to use these commands. I noticed that the 2D mesh looks the same with and without the Periodic Line commands, which leads me to believe that I am not using the commands correctly.

Also, could you suggest any tutorials or examples that show the Periodic commands?

Thank you for your help.

Best regards,

Nicole Pitre
