I am looking to calculate a mesh quality measure that would be the ratio of the
max/min of the element volumes of each element and all it's neighbors (other
elements with common nodes). I intend to use this to quantify grid refinement
transitions and perhaps establish some design standards for them. I have
tried Gradient of Element Volume, but I need to eliminate the distance part of
that to get the number that I want. So, if I have a hex element in a regular
grid, I would expect to have 26 "neighbor" elements plus the original element.
The number I want is (max of 27 element volumes)/(min of 27 element
volumes). This quantity will highlight mesh refinement transitions.
My question (at last) is: how do I find all the neighbor elements (share at
least 1 node) of each element in my model? I'd like to do this in a
Programmable Filter. I'm afraid I don't know much about how connectivity is
implemented in vtk.
