The easiest way to set tensor data in SCIRun is to create a nx6 or nx9
matrix, where n is the number of nodes or elements in your mesh and use set
field data. each row would be the entries in your tensor, with 6 being the
unique values and 9 being all of them. 9 is a bit easier because it is just
the linearized form of the tensor (xx, xy, xz, yx, yy, yz, zx, zy, zz), but 6
requires less memory (xx, xy, xz, yy, yz, zz).
