Dear Florian,

That's right. These functions do not accept a mesh region as parameter (and 
should probably be).

A priori, you can overcome this by interpolating on a Lagrange fem defined only 
on a specific mesh region. 

Best regards,

Objet: [Getfem-users] problem with the von Mises stress: different      

Dear users of getfem,

I am trying to learn getfem for different applications, making 
individual steps to explore the possibility of the package with python. 
I am currently simulating linear elasticity, more precisely a simple 2D 
cantilever with Dirichlet conditions on the sides and an external force 
on the top (see the attached step2.pdf for illustration), however my 
geometry (see the attached .geo file) contains 2 materials. I described 
my problem specifying the region label when adding the linearized 
elasticity brick:

# adding the physical equations of the linear elasticity to the model
model.add_fem_variable('u', displacement)
# for the Steel
model.add_initialized_data('lambda_S', clambda_S)
model.add_initialized_data('mu_S', cmu_S)
model.add_filtered_fem_variable('lambdastar_S', clambdastar_S)
# for the Aluminium
model.add_initialized_data('lambda_Al', clambda_Al)
model.add_initialized_data('mu_Al', cmu_Al)
model.add_initialized_data('lambdastar_Al', clambdastar_Al)

I have a result for the displacement, however I am blocked to compute 
the von Mises stress as I can't specify a region to the 
compute_isotropic_linearized_Von_Mises_or_Tresca method... Is there any 
solution to overcome this issue. (by the way, I am using gmsh to create 
the mesh, the input and output files are attached as well as my python 
script for getfem).

I thank you in advance,

best regards,
