Volume interaction

Generating volume elements on a mesh is done with a specific Interaction called FieldApplicator:

app = FieldApplicator(no)
app.push(gObject1)
app.push(gObject2)
...
app.addProperty(prp)        # association of an ElementProperties
app.addRuptureCriterion(rc) # failure criterion (optional)
interactionset.add(app)     # the interaction is added in InteractionSet

or

app = interactionset.add(FieldApplicator(no)) #add returns a reference
app.push(gObject1)
app.push(gObject2)
...
app.addProperty(prp)        # association of an ElementProperties
app.addRuptureCriterion(rc) # failure criterion (optional)

where

no number of the Interaction (which is to say the FieldApplicator)
gObject1 mesh geometric entity where the finite elements are applied
prp Properties of volume elements to generate.
rc optional Failure criterion
