Automated hexahedral element meshing has been the ‘Holy Grail’ of mesh generation research for years. The rigid connectivity and shape constraints of these meshes provide the challenge. The ever-present economic pressure for automating meshing of complex geometries, difficult transitions and large mesh sizes establishes the opportunity. This paper will systematically review the requirements of the hexahedral meshing challenge, the various approaches to the solution of the problem (along with… CONTINUE READING
