Parallel (Distributed) Mesh Generation

CENTAUR has the capability to generate hybrid meshes in parallel. The domain is distributed to separate processors and/or machines allowing for simultaneous meshing within all subdomains.


CAD-based surfaces used to divide the domain (planar, cylindrical, etc)
 
Linux and Windows machines can be combined

Straightforward setup

Multiple processors can be used with a single key
 

 

Parallel (Multi-Core) Mesh Generation

Using multi-core machines allows for faster mesh generation.

 
FASTER MESH GENERATION
 
Speeds up all phases of the mesh generation process: surface, boundary layer, and tetrahedra.


ACCELERATED GUI INTERACTION
 
Faster CAD Import / Cleaning.


SIMPLE TO USE
 
Just set the number of cores.
 

Note: The Distributed and Multi-Core parallel mesh generation can be combined yielding extra speed.

 

Example: Two Straked Pipes

This geometry is split into three zones to allow for each of the two pipes to be replaced using modular mesh generation. The mesh for each zone is generated simultaneously using the CENTAUR's parallel mesh generation feature.
