Detailed Description

reads a dataset in AVS "UCD" format

vtkAVSucdReader creates an unstructured grid dataset. It reads binary or ASCII files stored in UCD format, with optional data stored at the nodes or at the cells of the model. A cell-based fielddata stores the material id. The class can automatically detect the endian-ness of the binary files.

Thanks to Guenole Harel and Emmanuel Colin (Supelec engineering school, France) and Jean M. Favre (CSCS, Switzerland) who co-developed this class. Thanks to Isabelle Surin (isabelle.surin at, CEA-DAM, France) who supervised the internship of the first two authors. Thanks to Daniel Aguilera (daniel.aguilera at, CEA-DAM, France) who contributed code and advice. Please address all comments to Jean Favre (jfavre at

Member Function Documentation

static vtkAVSucdReader* vtkAVSucdReader::New  )  [static]

Create an object with Debug turned off, modified time initialized to zero, and reference counting on.

Reimplemented from vtkUnstructuredGridAlgorithm.

virtual const char* vtkAVSucdReader::GetClassName  )  [virtual]

Reimplemented from vtkUnstructuredGridAlgorithm.

static int vtkAVSucdReader::IsTypeOf const char *  type  )  [static]

Return 1 if this class type is the same type of (or a subclass of) the named class. Returns 0 otherwise. This method works in combination with vtkTypeRevisionMacro found in vtkSetGet.h.

Reimplemented from vtkUnstructuredGridAlgorithm.

virtual int vtkAVSucdReader::IsA const char *  type  )  [virtual]

Return 1 if this class is the same type of (or a subclass of) the named class. Returns 0 otherwise. This method works in combination with vtkTypeRevisionMacro found in vtkSetGet.h.

Reimplemented from vtkUnstructuredGridAlgorithm.

static vtkAVSucdReader* vtkAVSucdReader::SafeDownCast vtkObject o  )  [static]

Reimplemented from vtkUnstructuredGridAlgorithm.

void vtkAVSucdReader::PrintSelf ostream &  os,
vtkIndent  indent

Methods invoked by print to print information about the object including superclasses. Typically not called by the user (use Print() instead) but used in the hierarchical print process to combine the output of several classes.

Reimplemented from vtkUnstructuredGridAlgorithm.
