# Mesh: Plotting with defining rangeΒΆ

When using a large Mesh with the cylindrical code, it is advantageous
to define a `range_x`

and `range_y`

when plotting with
vectors. In this case, only the region inside of the range is
interpolated. In particular, you often want to ignore padding cells.

Out:

```
Minimum skin depth (in sphere): 1.58e+00 m
Maximum skin depth (in background): 1.58e+05 m
The maximum skin depth is (in background): 1.58e+05 m. Does the mesh go sufficiently past that?
There are 2 sources (same as the number of frequencies - 2). Each source has 2 receivers sampling the resulting b-fields
```

# ## Mesh
#
# Here, we define a cylindrically symmetric tensor mesh.
#
# ### Mesh Parameters
#
# For the mesh, we will use a cylindrically symmetric tensor mesh. To
# construct a tensor mesh, all that is needed is a vector of cell widths in
# the x and z-directions. We will define a core mesh region of uniform cell
# widths and a padding region where the cell widths expand "to infinity".
# x-direction
csx = 2 # core mesh cell width in the x-direction
ncx = np.ceil(1.2*sphere_radius/csx) # number of core x-cells (uniform mesh slightly beyond sphere radius)
npadx = 50 # number of x padding cells
# z-direction
csz = 1 # core mesh cell width in the z-direction
ncz = np.ceil(1.2*(boom_height - (sphere_z-sphere_radius))/csz) # number of core z-cells (uniform cells slightly below bottom of sphere)
npadz = 52 # number of z padding cells
# padding factor (expand cells to infinity)
pf = 1.3
# cell spacings in the x and z directions
hx = Utils.meshTensor([(csx, ncx), (csx, npadx, pf)])
hz = Utils.meshTensor([(csz, npadz, -pf), (csz, ncz), (csz, npadz, pf)])
# define a SimPEG mesh
mesh = Mesh.CylMesh([hx, 1, hz], x0 = np.r_[0.,0., -hz.sum()/2.-boom_height])
# ### Plot the mesh
#
# Below, we plot the mesh. The cyl mesh is rotated around x=0. Ensure that
# each dimension extends beyond the maximum skin depth.
#
# Zoom in by changing the xlim and zlim.
# X and Z limits we want to plot to. Try

# ## Put Model on Mesh
#
# Now that the model parameters and mesh are defined, we can define
# electrical conductivity on the mesh.
#
# The electrical conductivity is defined at cell centers when using the
# finite volume method. So here, we define a vector that contains an
# electrical conductivity value for every cell center.
# create a vector that has one entry for every cell center

# indices of the sphere (where (x-x0)**2 + (z-z0)**2 <= R**2)

(mesh.gridCC[:,0]**2 + (mesh.gridCC[:,2] - sphere_z)**2) <=

# ## Set up the Survey
#
# Here, we define sources and receivers. For this example, the receivers
# are magnetic flux recievers, and are only looking at the secondary field
# (eg. if a bucking coil were used to cancel the primary). The source is a
# vertical magnetic dipole with unit moment.
# Define the receivers, we will sample the real secondary magnetic flux
# density as well as the imaginary magnetic flux density

) # vertical imag b (same as b-secondary)

# Define the list of sources - one source for each frequency. The source is
# a point dipole oriented in the z-direction

FDEM.Src.MagDipole(rxList, f, src_loc, orientation='z') for f in freqs

# ## Set up Forward Simulation
#
# A forward simulation consists of a paired SimPEG problem and Survey.
# For this example, we use the E-formulation of Maxwell's equations,
# solving the second-order system for the electric field, which is defined
# on the cell edges of the mesh. This is the `prob` variable below. The
# `survey` takes the source list which is used to construct the RHS for the
# problem. The source list also contains the receiver information, so the
# `survey` knows how to sample fields and fluxes that are produced by
# solving the `prob`.
# define a problem - the statement of which discrete pde system we want to
# solve
prob = FDEM.Problem3D_e(mesh, sigmaMap=Maps.IdentityMap(mesh))
prob.solver = Solver
survey = FDEM.Survey(srcList)
# tell the problem and survey about each other - so the RHS can be
# constructed for the problem and the
# resulting fields and fluxes can be sampled by the receiver.
prob.pair(survey)
# ### Solve the forward simulation
#
# Here, we solve the problem for the fields everywhere on the mesh.
fields = prob.fields(sigma)
