pCAMAL: An embarrassingly parallel hexahedral mesh generator. (English) Zbl 1134.65325
Brewer, Michael L. (ed.) et al., Proceedings of the 16th international meshing roundtable, Seattle, WA, USA, October 14–17, 2007. Berlin: Springer (ISBN 978-3-540-75102-1/hbk). 269-284 (2008).
Summary: This paper describes a distributed-memory, embarrassingly parallel hexahedral mesh generator, pCAMAL (parallel CUBIT adaptive mesh algorithm library). pCAMAL utilizes the sweeping method following a serial step of geometry decomposition conducted in the CUBIT geometry preparation and mesh generation tool. The utility of pCAMAL in generating large meshes is illustrated, and linear speed-up under load-balanced conditions is demonstrated.
