Hello everyone:

I am a C++ newbie; I am interesting in using C++ in my work on coupled fluid flow-chemical reaction problems. I apologize in advance for what is probably a very simple question. I would very much appreciate some help to get me on the right track!

My goal is to come up with C++ code for solving a finite difference problem. To do this, I need to (1) construct a 2-D grid and (2) link a struct of data (fluid properties) to the grid. At some point, as I become more experienced, I'd like to learn how to use pointers and iterators, etc, but for now I would like to keep things as simple as possible.

Using some examples, I have come up with a way of constructing a grid that mostly makes sense. But I cannot figure out how to link the grid with a struct of fluid properties. Sorry--I'm certain this is a simple thing to do.

Here is my grid:

template <typename T>				
class Grid2D
{
  public:
	Grid() : xsize_(0), ysize_(0), grid_(0) { }		
	Grid(double xsize, double ysize) : xsize_(xsize), ysize_(ysize), grid_(new T[ xsize_ * ysize_ ]) { }
								
	~Grid() { delete[ ] grid_; }			
	Create(double xsize, double ysize) 		
		{
		xsize_ = xsize; 				
		ysize_ = ysize;
		grid_ = new T[ xsize_ * ysize_ ];		
		}
	Resize(double xsize, double ysize) 
		{
		xsize_ = xsize; 				
		ysize_ = ysize; 
		delete[ ] grid_;					
		grid_ = new T[ xsize_ * ysize_ ];
		}
	Delete()						
		{
		xsize_ = 0;
		ysize_ = 0;
		delete[ ] grid_;
		grid_ = 0;
		}
	double xsize() const { return xsize_; }	
	double ysize() const { return ysize_; }		
	T& operator(double x, double y) { return grid_[ y*xsize_ + x ]; }			
	const T& operator(double x, double y) const { return grid_[ y*xsize_ + x ]; }		
  private: 
	double xsize_, ysize_;
	T* grid_;
}

Edited 7 Years Ago by Nick Evan: Added code-tags

That is a very good question Anettest. But, you get more chances in getting it solved if you pose it in the C++ forum, instead of the C# forum.
Also: put code between code tags.

Sorry about that! Will do.
