Using Radial Basis Functions for Surface Interpolation
Have you ever had a set of nonuniformly distributed points in a Cartesian plane that sample a surface height, such as points on the contours of a map or data points representing some material property data? If so, you probably also wanted to reconstruct, or interpolate, a continuous and smooth surface between these points. You can construct such a surface using the core capabilities of COMSOL Multiphysics by using Radial Basis Functions. Let’s find out how…
Accessing Nonlocal Variables with Linear Extrusion Operators
In many simulation tasks, it is necessary to transfer variables from one region of a computation domain (the source) to another region or component (the destination). In COMSOL Multiphysics, this functionality is achieved by defining a point-to-point map, called an extrusion operator, that relates a set of destination points with a set of source points. Once a mapping is established by an extrusion operator, all variables defined at the source can be accessed from the destination using the same operator.
