General Description

This is a pseudo solver (i.e. it is not solving an equation). This solver compute the nodal 2D gradient vector g_i={{\partial v}/{\partial x_i}} of a variable v.

This is used for example by the mesh adaptation procedure to compute the hessian of v (Mesh Adaptation).

By default (FE consistent average = Logical True), this is done using a -projection on the FE mesh; If FE consistent average = False, at a given node the derivative is simply the average of the derivatives evaluated at the node in each elements sharing the node.

Examples for anisotropic mesh adaptation can be found under [ELMER_TRUNK]/elmerice/Tests/MMG2D_Aniso1 and [ELMER_TRUNK]/elmerice/Tests/MMG2D_Aniso2, where the mesh size is adapted using 1 or 2 variables (i.e. combining metric informations), respectively.
