CFD and FEA Meshing Overview
Posted Thu September 04, 2003 @08:53AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Grid Generation Mechanical Engineering magazine has posted an overview of grid generation for FEA and CFD analysis. "making a mesh of things" covers developments in meshing in the last few years and explains the trade-offs associated with "simple meshing".
Pre-processing mesh technologies can now automatically generate the mesh necessary for analysis. Like most things, this is both good and bad. It means that expert analysts need not be involved in simple analysis, but it also means the software design engineers can run analyses without fully understanding FEA methodology, which could affect design.
