MESHING RESEARCH CORNER:

http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/user/sowen/mesh.html

The Research Corner includes: Keywords, New, Recent Conferences, Topics, Authors, Tips, Links, Jobs, Software, and Listserv


The Research Corner webpage is an attempt at compiling some of the current literature available on the subject of unstructured mesh generation. Currently more than 700 journal and proceedings articles are referenced. Abstracts are sited for most of the references. Complete papers are available for the past five years of the International Meshing Roundtable. Maintained by Steve Owen, Sandia National Laboratories

1. VKI course on unstructured grid generation

This year's edition of the von Karman Institute 31th Computational
Fluid Dynamics lecture series will focus on grid generation and
solution adaptive mesh algorithms for high Reynolds number
Navier-Stokes simulation. The course will be held in Brussels,
March 20-24, 2000.

The Lecture Course will address some of the key topics in mesh
generation, with an emphasis on unstructured grids applied in
computational fluid dynamics. Some of the key issues associated with the
links to CAD, algorithms and data structures will be introduced. The latest
developments in grid algorithms will be discussed for the generation of
isotropic and anisotropic tetrahedral grids and the generation of
unstructured hexahedral grids. There will also be a strong emphasis placed
on grid quality and error estimation for finite element methods.

The web site of the course can be found at

2. NUMIGRID 2000 conference

The 7th International Conference on Numerical Grid Generation in
Computational Field Simulations will be held at Chateau Whistler
Resort, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada, September 25-28, 2000.
The deadline for submitting abstracts is March 15, 2000.
