Parallel (Distributed) Mesh Generation

CENTAUR has the capability to generate hybrid meshes in parallel.

  • CAD-based zones are used to split the geometry
  • Support for
    • Multiple Machines (mixture of Unix and Linux is okay)
    • Multiple Processors
    • Multiple Cores
  • Produces large meshes much faster than sequential generation
  • Straightforward setup process

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.
