A Simple Mesh Generator in MATLAB

  title={A Simple Mesh Generator in MATLAB},
  author={Per-Olof Persson and Gilbert Strang},
  journal={SIAM Review},
Creating a mesh is the first step in a wide range of applications, including scientific computing and computer graphics. An unstructured simplex mesh requires a choice of meshpoints (vertex nodes) and a triangulation. We want to offer a short and simple MATLAB code, described in more detail than usual, so the reader can experiment (and add to the code) knowing the underlying principles. We find the node locations by solving for equilibrium in a truss structure (using piecewise linear force… CONTINUE READING
