NAME

       Gmsh - 3D finite element mesh generator with built-in CAD engine and post-processor

SYNOPSIS

       gmsh [file(s)] [option(s)]

DESCRIPTION

       Gmsh  is a 3D finite element grid generator with a build-in CAD engine and post-processor.
       Its design goal is to provide a fast, light and user-friendly meshing tool with parametric
       input and advanced visualization capabilities.

       Gmsh  is  built  around  four  modules:  geometry,  mesh,  solver and post-processing. The
       specification of any input to  these  modules  is  done  either  interactively  using  the
       graphical user interface or in ASCII text files using Gmsh's own scripting language.

GEOMETRY OPTIONS

       -0  Output model, then exit.

       -tol float
           set geometrical tolerance.

MESH OPTIONS

       -1, -2, -3

       -clscale float
           set global scaling factor to the mesh characteristic lengths in the model.

       -clmin float
           Set minimum characteristic length.

       -clmax float
           Set maximum characteristic length.

       -rand float
           set random perturbation factor.

       -bgm file
           load the post-processing view in file as the current background mesh.

       -check
           perform various consistency checks on mesh.

POST-PROCESSING OPTIONS

       -open
           ppen next files.

       -a, -g, -m, -s, -p
