int GiD_fWriteElement(GiD_FILE fd, int id, int nid[]);

int GiD_fWriteSphere(GiD_FILE fd, int id, int nid, double r);

int GiD_fWriteCircle(GiD_FILE fd, int id, int nid, double r,double nx, double ny, double nz);

Description: Write an element member at the current Elements Block.

Parameters:

GiD_FILE fd the file descriptor

int id Element number identifier

int nid[] connectivities of the element, the vector dimension must be equal to the NNode parameter given in the previous call to GiD_fBeginMesh

r the radius (sphere or circle element only)

nx,ny,nz unitary normal of the circle plane (circle element only)

Example:

C/C++

int id=2;

int nid[3];

nid[0]=4; nid[1]=7; nid[2]=3;

GiD_fWriteElementMat(fd,id,nid);

FORTRAN

INTEGER *4 nid(1:3)

INTEGER*4 idx

idx=2

nid(1)=4

nid(2)=7

nid(3)=3

CALL GID_FWRITEELEMENT(fd,idx,nid)
