Abstract: Mesh generation is crucial in computational fluids dynamic (CFD) analysis, which solves a set of partial differential equations (PDE) based on a computational mesh. To a large extent, the success of solving these equations depends on the mesh quality. In addition to the orthogonality and the smoothness, the mesh density distribution is the key to a desirable mesh. The objective of the current research is to develop methods which make the control of mesh density simple and effective. The resulting mesh is near-orthogonal but more desirable for the numerical simulation. In this study, two new techniques for mesh density control are proposed. The first one is a three-parameter stretching function which stretches the nodes along a line in two directions and control their location of the distribution. The second method is a modified RL system (Ryskin and Leal, 1983) in which the distortion function is evaluated by the averaged scale factors and the scale factors which are formulated by weighting functions of desired mesh density distribution.
Description: Paper presented at The Seventh International Conference on HydroScience and Engineering (ICHE)hosted by the College of Engineering at Drexel Univeristy on September 10-13, 2006 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The conference theme was IT in the Field of HydroSciences. It included several mini-symposia that emphasized IT topics in HydroSciences and the yearly meeting of the metadata group of the International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange organization.
