SUMMARY This paper describes a method to extrude near-body volume meshes that exploits topologically adaptive generalized elements to improve local mesh quality. Specifically, an advancing layer algorithm for extruding volume meshes from surface meshes of arbitrary topology, appropriate for viscous fluid flows, is discussed. First, a two-layer reference(More)
An algorithm to generate volume meshes by extrusion from surface meshes of arbitrary topology is presented. The algorithm utilizes a three-step, advancing layer scheme to extrude a smooth volume mesh starting from an initial surface mesh. First, a locally orthogonal reference mesh is algebraically generated for the layer. The reference mesh is then smoothed(More)
A novel algorithm to extrude smooth, near-body volume meshes from surface meshes of arbitrary topology is presented. These meshes are classified as generalized meshes because multiple element topologies may be present within the same mesh. The algorithm utilizes a three-step, parabolic scheme based on the Poisson equation used in structured grid generation(More)
