AVL started their one of a kind web based eFAME meshing service in December 2002 and since then, the success has been outstanding. The unrivaled fast mesh generation and easy purchasing process has convinced many CAE specialists to use the service. An important feature of the service is a guaranteed 48 hour response time regardless of problem size.
The field of application is nearly unlimited, and the hybrid meshes generated are of high quality. The eFAME service benefits from AVL's FAME development work. Meshes, generated with the latest version, FAME Advanced Hybrid, are characterized by wall layers and a high portion of hexahedral elements. Tetrahedral and pyramidal elements are used in transition layers from coarse to fine (and vice versa).
The results are very efficient meshes with a comparable low number of elements - an important benefit for the solver calculation time, which directly corresponds to the number of elements. Mesh efficiency is further supported by the automatic feature size recognition capability, which identifies sharp edges and strong curvatures and automatically refines the mesh in those areas.
