Using MAP, Marker Allocation Procedures, PLANT permits properties, sources and solid objects to be placed within pre-defined grids, their presence being signalled by the attachment of the corresponding fluxes and material-property values to the cells marked by special variable.

The grid can be cartesian, polar or BFC one, the fineness of which the user can control; but he concerns himself only with the construction of the cell-wise distributions of variable, MARK, which constitute the shapes of the MARKed regions.

User is helped in the performance of marker allocations by sufficiently varied set of special functions, the selection, sizing and location of which are the user's main tasks.

A library of utility functions> is available for calculation of marker distributions in the flow domain. The latters are used to represent the inserts of complex shapes, moving objects, solid shape distortions, region identifications etc.

The pictures represent 20 examples of the use of MAP.

Example 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20.
