GENERATION OF FINITE ELEMENT MESHES FROM NODAL ARRAYS.

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Two methods for automatically generating meshes of triangular elements from arbitrary arrays of nodes are discussed. Both techniques involve the construction of the Wigner-Seitz cell around each node. One technique, which has been reported previously, leads to a large proportion of inefficient, high aspect-ratio triangles. An alternative approach is proposed which yields a mesh of near-equilateral triangles, even in those regions where the density of the nodal array is varying rapidly.
