Find Feature Boundary Strength Metrics

Group (Subgroup)

Statistics (Crystallographic)


This Filter calculates the same metrics as in the Find Neighbor Slip Transmission Metrics Filter. However, this Filter stores the values in the Face Attribute Matrix of a Triangle Geometry. The algorithm the Filter uses is as follows:

  1. Find the two Features that are separated by a Face in the Triangle Geometry
  2. Get the average orientation of both of the Features
  3. Calculate the transmission metrics from both directions (i.e. Feature 1 to Feature 2 and Feature 2 to Feature 1)
  4. Store the metrics in the Face map
  5. Repeat for all Faces

Note: Each metric is calculated twice for the two different directions slip could approach the boundary. The values are stored on each Face in the Face map in a way that notes the direction (i.e., when Feature 1 has neighbor Feature 2 and when Feature 2 has neighbor Feature 1) because the direction across the boundary between the Features affects the value of the metric.
