[D] How can I understand the Max Pooling Operation in this Paper?
In this paper, the Input got scaled down from 41×81×6 to 40x80x6 with Max Pooling.
How did they exactly do it?
I want to do something similar done in this paper, but I have 2 Matrixes with 65×49 and 4 with 64×48, since there is a difference with nodes and elements. (There is one more node in each dimension of the Elements)
They look like this:
The problem is: strains can be only on elements, the volume fraction as well (These are the 4 64×48 Matrixes). The displacement can only be shown with nodes. (These are the 2 65×49 Matrixes)
I was thinking about adding padding to the smaller Matrixes, so that the Dimensions are the same. Is a zero-padding okay in this case, since I make a Max Pooling Operation anyways?
