Abstract
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop technologies to automatically generate large meshes appropriate for finite element and similar analyses. This will be done using scalable, parallel algorithms that will enable the generation of meshes on distributed parallel computers including workstation clusters. The result of this project will be software that is capable of generating meshes with hundreds of millions, or billions of elements in an efficient manner. The generated meshes will already be partitioned to be compatible with the needs of parallel analysis codes. The commercial applications of this research are in those industries that need to perform large scale simulations of complex problems over general domains. The procedures to be developed will allow simulation based design technologies to be applied to applications that demand massive simulations.
