openmc.SphericalMesh

class openmc.SphericalMesh(mesh_id=None, name='')[source]

A 3D spherical mesh

Parameters
  • mesh_id (int) – Unique identifier for the mesh

  • name (str) – Name of the mesh

Variables
  • id (int) – Unique identifier for the mesh

  • name (str) – Name of the mesh

  • dimension (Iterable of int) – The number of mesh cells in each direction.

  • n_dimension (int) – Number of mesh dimensions (always 3 for a SphericalMesh).

  • r_grid (numpy.ndarray) – 1-D array of mesh boundary points along the r-axis. Requirement is r >= 0.

  • theta_grid (numpy.ndarray) – 1-D array of mesh boundary points along the theta-axis in radians. The default value is [0, π], i.e. the full theta range.

  • phi_grid (numpy.ndarray) – 1-D array of mesh boundary points along the phi-axis in radians. The default value is [0, 2π], i.e. the full phi range.

  • indices (Iterable of tuple) – An iterable of mesh indices for each mesh element, e.g. [(1, 1, 1), (2, 1, 1), …]
