All Mesh Element Types Supported

CENTAUR uses a hybrid mesh generation approach that allows for complex 2-D and 3-D geometries to be meshed optimally by using different mesh elements as required by the geometry and the needs of the particular flow simulation. The following element types are supported by CENTAUR:


STRUCTURED
 

Quadrilateral

Hexahedron



SEMI-STRUCTURED

Prism

Pyramid



UNSTRUCTURED

Triangle

Tetrahedron

Isotropic / Directional Elements

   
Pile of prisms Prismatic layer

 

 

Hexahedral layer Directional quads

 
 
Isotropic triangles Anisotropic triangles
