Hi,

I used Comsol to solve a PDE problem. I know that the solution is stored in the object fem.sol.u and the unstructured mesh points are stored in fem.mesh.p. If we assume fem.sol.u is a matrix of M*N (M is the number of spatial mesh points, and N is that for the time steps), then the fem.mesh.p should also have the dimension of M. Unfortunately, the mapping between index of p and u is not specified. Could anyone tell me how to do? Thanks.

You may never find how to do the mapping. One possible solution to your problem is to check if Comsol can export the solution in a different format, i.e., CGNS

Thank you for answering me. Could tell me explicitly about CGNS?

Actually, I don't understand why in using femtime as a solver the fem.sol object doesn't contain a list of mesh points, which correspond to the u value list. This will make life much easier ...

You could search for CGNS on google. I do not know much about comsol, and I might not be able to assist you. I know that Ansys can export the results in this CGNS format. I thought that maybe comsol can do the same, or maybe comsol can export them in another but user-friendly format.
