(24 April 2008) – Flomerics, a world-leading developer of engineering simulation software, has published a comprehensive technical white paper on mesh generation techniques for fluid flow simulation. Written for mechanical engineers, the paper explains the need for a computational mesh and the pros and cons of different mesh types. It also explains the factors affecting the choice of grid system such as cell shape, geometry representation, mesh structure and grid generation. “Engineers new to the world of fluid and thermal analysis often find the basic jargon quite daunting,” said Dr. John Parry, research manager at Flomerics. “Therefore, we have created a no-nonsense reference document for engineers focusing on meshing techniques. Our intention is to answer typical user questions, and so we have made the white paper freely available to anyone visiting our website.”
