Structured Surface Mesh Generation
CENTAUR is able to generate a structured quadrilateral surface mesh for any 4-sided surface. These structured quads are then used to create layers of locally structured hexahedra in the boundary layer region. The mesh spacing can be easily specified or automatically computed by the mesh generator.
Structured surface meshes allow for a high quality mesh to be created for a variety of cases including:
- Wings and Blades requiring high aspect ratio, aligned grids
- Simulations using turbulence models requiring hexahedra instead of prisms
- Cases using Hex Blocks to to add additional hexahedra to the domain or to fill an entire geometry or region with hexahedra.
