High Order (Curved) Grids

CENTAUR can create quadratic (curved edge) hybrid meshes for increased solution accuracy with reduced number of elements. The curved mesh edges conform to the geometry. The quadratic meshes are well suited for a large number of curved parts, such as pipes and holes. These meshes can be exported via various formats including CGNS.

Examples

Quadratic elements are primarily used for curved boundaries. The linear and quadratic grids for a sector of an annular tube with a pipe and the leading edge of a wing are depicted below:
