High Order Mesh Curving and Geometry Access, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

During Phase I, our effort will focus on three software tools; CurveMesh, Geode and SLUGS. These tools will be developed in anticipation of use in the commercial mesh generation software Pointwise and consideration will be given to requirements for parallel implementation in a distributed computing environment. A new initialization procedure will be implemented in CurveMesh to provide more robust starting perturbation field prior to the optimization based smoothing scheme placing points in final position for optimal cell quality of the curved mesh. Access to the geometry kernel, Geode, will be provided through an API for operations required for mesh curving and mesh adaptation. Communication protocols will be developed to permit flow solver to prescribe mesh sizing information to mesh generation programs for h-p adaption. And discrete surface tessellation will be process using SLUGS to create smooth splined surfaces. More »
