New River Gorge Bridge Area Topography
The topography of the New River around the New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia was meshed using CENTAUR. A full hybrid grid was generated beginning with Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data from the United States Geological Survey (USGS). The terrain data was sampled at 1/3 arcsecond intervals (~10m resolution).
The final CENTAUR mesh consists of prisms, pyramids and tetrahedra and is suitable for CFD modeling of pollution dispersion, wind patterns and other environmental flows.
