class libMesh::Side< SideType, ParentType >
Proxy class for efficiently representing an Elem's side.
This defines the
Side class. A
Side is basically a proxy (or stand-in replacement) class for an element's side. It acts like a standard
Elem, but allocates no additional memory for storing connectivity. Instead, its nodes are mapped directly from the parent element (the element for which the side is created). Similarly, you cannot access the neighbors of a side since it does not store any.
