Add plugin to visualize results generated using XFEM with MOOSE
Idaho National Laboratory's MOOSE framework (http://www.mooseframework.org, https://github.com/idaholab/moose) includes an implementation of the extended finite element method (XFEM) based on the phantom node method. In this technique, elements cut by a strong discontinuity are replaced by two overlapping elements, each containing "physical" and "non-physical" parts of the domain. To correctly visualize the results, the non-physical parts need to be clipped from the domain. The following two images show the results before and after the clipping process, with the non-physical parts of the domain shown in gray before clipping:
I have developed a ParaView plugin for this purpose, which is currently hosted at: https://github.com/idaholab/XFEMParaviewPlugin I would like to get this added to the ParaView codebase so that users will not need to build ParaView from source to use this plugin.
