The FIELDS module and the MEDCoupling library provide several powerful functionalities around the input and output data of field-physics-oriented simulation codes. Data manipulated by MEDCoupling are objects relative to fields for simulation codes.
MEDCoupling functionalities are accessible through:
- C++ API
- medcoupling Python module (generated by wrapping of C++ API above)
- FIELDS module within SALOME
MEDCoupling functionalities can be split into 4 categories:
- Data movement: read/write from/to file, reduce, extract, duplicate, aggregate, compare, exchange data memory to memory across process.
- Data analysis: extract/gather information in data to transform it into a condensed workable data (not necessarily field linked) for further use.
- Data conversion: interpolate, project, repair, decimate, format conversion to couple multiple simulation codes.
- Data optimization for simulation code: renumbering, partitioning for multiprocessor codes.
