Modular Mesh Generation
The CENTAUR Modular Mesh Tool offers the important capability to generate derivative meshes from an original mesh by re-meshing part of the geometry while leaving the rest of the mesh unchanged.
A local region/part of the geometry can be changed with only the corresponding local mesh being re-generated. The advantages of the approach are minimization of the mesh changes and localization of the setup, yielding faster and more accurate re-designs.
Example: High-lift Wing
The type of elements on the flap surface is changed from prisms to hexahedra. The mesh changes locally only in the flap region:
