discretize.CurvilinearMesh.faces_z

property CurvilinearMesh.faces_z

Gridded z-face locations (staggered grid)

This property returns a numpy array of shape (n_faces_z, dim) containing gridded locations for all z-faces in the mesh (staggered grid). For curvilinear meshes whose structure is minimally staggered, the z-faces are faces whose normal vectors are primarily along the z-direction. For highly irregular meshes however, this is not the case.

Returns
(n_faces_z, dim) numpy.ndarray of float
