[Getdp] Error normal for element 16

Hi Frederic,

element type 16 means that it's an 8-node second order quadrangle.
There are several functions in GetDP which do not work yet for higher order meshes.
If you try it with 4-node first order quadrangles, it should work.

Subject: [Getdp] Error normal for element 16

Dear all,

I get an error while trying to get the normal of mesh elements:

"Error   : Normal computation not done (yet) for Element Type 16"

Is it due to an actual limitation of getdp or the generated mesh in
salome platform.

I am creating the mesh with netgen saved in *.med from salome
platform v6.6 which is converted to *.msh to be proceeded in getdp.
