The quality improvement in mesh optimisation techniques that preserve its connectivity are obtained by an iterative process in which each node of the mesh is moved to a new position that minimises a certain objective function. The objective function is derived from some quality measure of the local submesh, that is, the set of tetrahedra connected to the(More)
The efficiency of a mass-consistent model for wind field adjustment depends on several parameters that arise in various stages of the process. On one hand, those involved in the construction of the initial wind field using horizontal interpolation and vertical extrapolation of the wind measures registered at meteorological stations. On the other hand, the(More)
In this work, we present a simultaneous untangling and smoothing technique for quadrilateral and hexahedral meshes. The algorithm iteratively improves a quadrilateral or hexahedral mesh by minimizing an objective function defined in terms of a regularized algebraic distortion measure of the elements. We propose several techniques to improve the robustness(More)
This paper presents a new procedure to improve the quality of triangular meshes defined on surfaces. The improvement is obtained by an iterative process in which each node of the mesh is moved to a new position that minimizes certain objective function. This objective function is derived from an algebraic quality measures of the local mesh (the set of(More)
This paper introduces a new automatic strategy for adaptive tetrahedral mesh generation. A local refinement/derefinement algorithm for nested triangula-tions and a simultaneous untangling and smoothing procedure are the main involved techniques. The mesh generator is applied to 3-D complex domains whose boundaries are projectable on external faces of a(More)
In this paper we introduce an automatic tetrahedral mesh generator for complex genus-zero solids, based on the novel meccano technique. Our method only demands a surface triangulation of the solid, and a coarse approximation of the solid, called meccano, that is just a cube in this case. The procedure builds a 3-D triangulation of the solid as a deformation(More)
In this work we develop a procedure to deform a given surface triangulation to obtain its alignment with interior curves. These curves are defined by splines in a parametric space and, subsequently, mapped to the surface triangulation. We have restricted our study to orthogonal mapping, so we require the curves to be included in a patch of the surface that(More)
