Segments around Vertex

Segments around Vertex algorithm is considered to be a 0D meshing algorithm, but, of course, it doesn’t mesh vertices. It allows to define the local size of the segments in the neighborhood of a certain vertex. If we assign this algorithm to a geometrical object of higher dimension, it applies to all its vertices.

Length of segments near vertex is defined by Length Near Vertex hypothesis. This hypothesis is used by Wire Discretization or Composite Side Discretization algorithms as follows: a geometrical edge is discretized according to a 1D hypotheses and then nodes near vertices are modified to assure the segment length required by Length Near Vertex hypothesis.
