Finite Element Mesh Sizing for Surfaces Using Skeleton

  title={Finite Element Mesh Sizing for Surfaces Using Skeleton},
  author={William Roshan Quadros and Steven J. Owen and Michael L. Brewer and Kenji Shimada},
The finite element (FE) mesh sizing has great influence on computational time, memory usage, and accuracy of FE analysis. Based on a systematic in-depth study of the geometric complexity of a set of connected surfaces, a computational procedure for the generation of FE mesh sizing function is proposed. The computational procedure has three main steps: (1) Generation of source points that determine the size and gradient at certain points on the surface; (2) generation of an octree lattice for… CONTINUE READING
