discretize.CylindricalMesh.face_x_areas

property CylindricalMesh.face_x_areas

x-face areas for the entire mesh

This property returns a 1D vector containing the areas of the x-faces of the mesh. The surface area takes into account curvature. For a single x-face at radial location \(r\) with azimuthal width \(\Delta \phi\) and vertical width \(h_z\), the area is given by:

\[A_x = r \Delta phi h_z\]
Returns
(n_faces_x) numpy.ndarray

A 1D array containing the x-face areas for the entire mesh
