A Voronoi-Based Hybrid Meshing Method

in: International Meshing Roundtable, Research Notes

Abstract

In this research note we introduce a method to build volumetric hybrid meshes suitable for finite element computations. The generated mesh is conformal to a set of input surfaces; thin sections are meshed with prisms, pyramids, and tetrahedra, while the remaining of the domain is meshed with Delaunay tetrahedra.
