GocadSGridReader reads a Gocad stratigraphic grid (file ending sg) and writes the data in the open vtk unstructured grid file format (file ending vtu). The tool doesn’t change the geometry, i.e., it doesn’t change the element quality. Thus, the mesh may not be usable for finite mesh element simulations immediately.
The tool is part of the official OpenGeoSys git repository and is build when the
OGS_BUILD_UTILS cmake switch is set
ON. The build executable
GocadSGridReader is placed in the
bin directory. The tool is a command line tool.
GocadSGridReader tool will print the required arguments and a short usage message; for detailed usage add the
bin/GocadSGridReader -s <file_name.sg> -o <file_name.vtu> [-f <true/false>] [--] [--version] [-h] Where: -s <file_name.sg>, --sg <file_name.sg> (required) Gocad stratigraphic grid file name -o <file_name.vtu>, --output-mesh <file_name.vtu> (required) vtk unstructured grid file name -f <true/false>, --generate-face-sets <true/false> generate face sets; default false, i.e. do not generate face sets
GocadSGridReader -s flow_simulation_grid_klein_Rinne.sg -o flow_simulation_grid_klein_Rinne.vtu
The tool was used to convert Gocad stratigraphic grids (‘GoCad Model’ in figure below) of the Thuringia syncline to a vtk unstructured grid (‘VTU’ in the figure) within the INFLUINS project. Further conversion steps were taken to prepare the mesh for the simulation (not part of this tool, see Fischer et al. 2015).
