CGAL 5.3  3D Mesh Generation

The concept MeshCellBase_3
describes the requirements for the Cell
type of the triangulation used in the 3D mesh generation process. The type MeshCellBase_3
refines the concept RegularTriangulationCellBaseWithWeightedCircumcenter_3
and must be copy constructible. The concept MeshCellBase_3
includes a way to store and retrieve if a given cell of the triangulation is inside the domain or not and which subdomain it belongs to in case of a multidomain.
Moreover, this concept adds four markers per cell to mark the facets of the triangulation that are surface facets, and four additional helper markers used in some operations to mark for instance the facets that have been visited.
This concept also provides storage for the centers of Delaunay surface balls. Each surface facet has a Delaunay surface ball, i. e. a circumscribing ball, centered on an input complex surface patch, and empty of triangulation vertices. In the following we call surface center of a surface facet, the center of its biggest Delaunay surface ball.
The optimizers also need this concept to provide readwrite access to two Cell_handle
called 'intrusive'.
For parallel algorithms, the functions related to facet access/modification must be concurrencysafe when several calls are made in parallel on different facets of the cell (e.g. calling set_facet_visited(0, true)
, set_facet_visited(2, true)
and is_facet_visited(1)
in parallel must be safe)
Moreover, the parallel algorithms require an erase counter in each cell (see below).
