Interpolation tools


The InterpKernel algorithms are part of the MED tool suite. They answer to the following basic problem : given a source mesh $M_s$, a source field $F_s$ and a target mesh $M_t$, reconstruct a field $F_t$ that uses $M_t$ as a support. The InterpKernel suite gives a number of possibilities to compute the target field, depending on a variety of user constraints.

General interpolation scheme

The starting point for using the tools is the description of the two main different APIs.

The possibilities encompass:

In case of non overlapping meshes, it is important to specify whether the field represents an extensive or intensive physical quantity through the Nature of a field attribute of the MEDCoupling field.
