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.

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".

    # ### 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.

    # 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`.

    # solve

    survey = FDEM.Survey(srcList)

    # constructed for the problem and the
    # resulting fields and fluxes can be sampled by the receiver.

    # Here, we solve the problem for the fields everywhere on the mesh.
