TOPIC: UNSTRUCTURED MESHING
STEVE OWEN, SANDIA NATIONAL LABORATORIES

Steve Owen is a senior member of the technical staff at Sandia National Laboratories and the newest member of the CUBIT group. He curently works on geometry related issues and unstructured meshing algorithms within the CUBIT software at Sandia. Steve recently completed his Ph.D. at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pensylvannia, while working at Ansys Inc, a commerial FEA company. Much of the work he completed for his Ph.D. has subsequently been implemented into the Ansys software. Recent work involved development of a new hexahedral-dominant mesh generation algorithm known as Hex-Morphing and an all-quad meshing algorithm known as Quad-Morphing. Steve also maintains the "Meshing Research Corner" website, a comprehensive site dedicated to current literature and software related to unstructured mesh generation.

TOPIC: GEOMETRY
TIM TAUTGES, SANDIA NATIONAL LABORATORIES

Dr. Timothy J. Tautges performs research and development in hexahedral meshing on the CUBIT project at Sandia National Laboratories. In addition to his research in the Whisker Weaving algorithm and automatic decomposition techniques, he lead the CUBIT project from 1996-1998. During that time, CUBIT emerged as a production-level code capable of producing multi-million element all-hex meshes for component assemblies. Dr. Tautges now telecommutes from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
