The main functionality is handled with a
PostProcessor-instance, populated with several
Field-items added to the
PostProcessor can represent meta computations (
MetaField2) such as time integrals or time derivatives, restrictions or subfunction, or norms. They can also represent custom computations, such as stress, strain, stream functions etc. All subclasses of the
Field-class inherits a set of parameters used to specify computation logic, and has a set of parameters related to saving, plotting, and computation intervals.
Planner, instantiated by the PostProcessor, handles planning of computations based on Field-parameters. It also handles the dependency, and plans ahead for computations at a later time.
For saving purposes the PostProcessor also creates a
Saver-instance. This will save Fields as specified by the Field-parameters and computed fields. It saves in a structured manner within a specified case directory.
In addition, there is support for plotting in the
Plotter-class, also created within the PostProcessor. It uses either dolfin.plot or pyplot.plot to plot data, based on data format.
