Given the importance of parallel mesh generation in large-scale scientific applications and the proliferation of multilevel SMT-based architectures, it is imperative to obtain insight on the interaction between meshing algorithms and these systems. We focus on Parallel Constrained Delaunay Mesh (PCDM) generation. We exploit coarse-grain parallelism at the(More)
A number of approaches have been suggested for the selection of the positions of Steiner points in Delaunay mesh refinement. In particular, one can define an entire region (called picking region or selection disk) inside the circumscribed sphere of a poor quality element such that any point can be chosen for insertion from this region. The two main results(More)
We describe the design of a flexible load balancing framework and runtime software system for supporting the development of adaptive applications on distributed-memory parallel computers. The runtime system supports a global namespace, transparent object migration, automatic message forwarding and routing, and automatic load balancing. These features can be(More)
We describe a parallel scheduler, for guaranteed quality parallel mesh generation and refinement methods. We prove a sufficient condition for the new points to be independent, which permits the concurrent insertion of more than two points without destroying the conformity and Delaunay properties of the mesh. The scheduling technique we present is much more(More)
We present a theoretical framework for developing parallel guaranteed quality De-launay mesh generation software, that allows us to use commercial off-the-shelf sequential Delaunay meshers for two-dimensional geometries. In this paper, we describe our approach for constructing uniform meshes, in other words, the meshes in which all elements have(More)
Mesh generation is a critical step in high fidelity computational simulations. High quality and high density meshes are required to accurately capture the complex physical phenomena. A parallel framework has been developed to generate large-scale meshes in a short period of time. A coarse volume mesh is generated first to provide the basis of block(More)
We develop the first ever fully functional three-dimensional guaranteed quality parallel graded Delaunay mesh generator. First, we prove a criterion and a sufficient condition of Delaunay-independence of Steiner points in three dimensions. Based on these results, we decompose the iteration space of the sequential Delaunay refinement algorithm by selecting(More)
We present a novel algorithm for tetrahedral image-to-mesh conversion which allows for guaranteed bounds on the smallest dihedral angle and on the distance between the boundaries of the mesh and the boundaries of the tissues. The algorithm produces a small number of mesh elements that comply with these bounds. We also describe and evaluate our(More)
Delaunay refinement is a widely used method for the construction of guaranteed quality triangular and tetrahedral meshes. We present an algorithm and a software for the parallel constrained Delaunay mesh generation in two dimensions. Our approach is based on the decomposition of the original mesh generation problem into <i>N</i> smaller subproblems which(More)
