3D anisotropic unstructured grid generation. (English) Zbl 1103.76054
Summary: This paper describes a fully automatic 3D anisotropic mesh generation for domains of arbitrary shape. The spacing of the boundary mesh is computed by the analysis of principal curvatures and directions of boundary surfaces. The spacing in the domain is obtained by interpolation of the spacing at the boundaries on a suitably constructed background mesh. Examples which illustrate the performance of the proposed methodology are presented.
