Re: to tgrid or not to tgrid
 
(1). It's very simple. tgrid is an old mesh code to generate tri/tet mesh automatically. (not the geometry) (2). Gambit is a new code which is trying to replace the Geomesh or the Patran code, to do both the geometry generation and the general mesh generation. So, this is a big code. (3).Grid adaption in Fluent is "modification to existing mesh". That is mesh refinement.
