Untangling of 2 D Meshes in ALE Simulations ?

  title={Untangling of 2 D Meshes in ALE Simulations ?},
  author={Pavel V{\'a}chal and Mikhail J. Shashkov},
A procedure is presented to untangle unstructured 2D meshes containing inverted elements by node repositioning. The inverted elements may result from node movement in ALE (Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian) simulations of continuum mechanics problems with large shear deformation such as fluid flow and metal forming. Meshes with inverted elements may also be created due to the limitations of mesh generation algorithms particularly for non-simplicial mesh generation. The untangling procedure uses a… CONTINUE READING
