1. New book: Handbook of Grid Generation

Eds. Joe Thompson, Bharat Soni and Nigel Weatherhill

CRC Press, ISBN 0-8493-2687-7

http://www.crcpress.com/catalog/2687.htm

This is a 1000+ pages volume with contributions from 55 researchers that presents the state of the art in structured and unstructured grid generation. A software survey is inluded.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. New book: Delaunay Triangulation and meshing

Paul-Louis George, Houman Borouchaki

Edition Hermes

http://www.editions-hermes.fr/692-0.htm

A detailed description of the results of more than 10 years of meshing research at INRIA. Treats constrained and unconstrained Delaunay triangulations in 2D and 3D, with special regard paid to unisotropic meshing.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. International Society on Grid Generation

A new society, founded by Joe F. Thompson et al. at Mississippi state. An effort to foster research and cooperation and distribution of knowledge in grid generation. A membership drive is currently under way. Check their website at http://www.erc.msstate.edu/isgg/.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. New public domain mesh generator: MegaCads

MegaCads is a 3D multiblock interactive system for the generation of structured grids, developed in the German MEGAFLOW project. Allows for elliptic and biharmonic smoothing of grids. Comes with a graphical user interface and an IGES converter. Detailed information can be found at:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. CFD General notation system

An effort to establish a standard for the exchange of CFD data, supported by several US companies and government institutions. An implementation of the API can be found at http://www.cgns.org/.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. Mesh generation Listserv

A new mailing list, setup by Steve Owen as part of the Meshing Research Corner:

http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/user/sowen/meshlist.html

It is intended to be a forum for discussion on what is currently being done in the field of mesh generation.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
