# discretize.CylindricalMesh.face_y_areas¶

property CylindricalMesh.face_y_areas

y-face areas for the entire mesh

This property returns a 1D vector containing the areas of the y-faces of the mesh. For a single y-face with edge lengths $$h_x$$ and $$h_z$$, the area is given by:

$A_y = h_x h_z$

Note that for symmetric meshes , there are no y-faces and calling this property will return an error.

Returns
(n_faces_y) numpy.ndarray

A 1D array containing the y-face areas in the case of non-symmetric meshes. Returns an error for symmetric meshes.
