Difference in Hex and Tet mesh

i would like to know what is the difference b/w Hex Mesh And what is it's effect in computational domain.

Thanks in advance for all participents for sharing there ideas on this topic.

Re: Difference in Hex and Tet mesh
hex mesh is simillar to rectangular mesh in two dimensional(stuctured mesh) whereas tetra mesh is simillar to tringular mesh ( unstucture mesh) . if u have complex geometry then if will be difficult to mesh with hexa mesh u need to go for tetra meshing scheme. but the tera mesh is computationaly expensive . hope it clear ur question.

Re: Difference in Hex and Tet mesh
Hi, Thanks for participation, but i want to know how tetra mesh is more computationally expensive. Generally it is regarded as Hex Mesh gives more accurate answer then the tet mesh. is this ture ? if yes how (can you explain / send some Material regarding this ).

With regards San
