Hierarchical Fractal Source in ParaView

The Hierarchical Fractal source uses the VTK source vtkHierarchicalFractalSource. The source generates and displays a hierarchical fractal.

  1. The user selects Source->Hierarchical Fractal from the main menu. This will open the Hierarchical Fractal Source interface.
  2. The Dimension box allows the user to specify the XYZ cell dimensions of a block to be created.
  3. The Fractal Value box allows the user to specify the value of the fractal. Change this value to 0.5 to be used as a CTH volume fraction.
  4. The Maximum Level box allows the user to specify the depth of the grid to be created.
  5. The Ghost Levels check box toggles on/off the generation of overlapping ghost cells.
  6. The Two-Dimensional check box toggles on/off the creation of a 2-D Adaptive Mesh Refinement fractal.
  7. The Asymmetric check box toggles on/off whether or not to have the X dimension to be two times larger than the other two dimensions.
  8. The Rectilinear Grid check box toggles on/off the use of a Rectilinear Grid or a Cartesian Grid.
  9. The Apply button must be pressed before the fractal plane will be generated.
