Anisotropic Adaptation

I am a beginer in Grid unstructured generation, till now I have worked on solver and structured grid generation only. I am looking for literature/book on grid generation ( I have already read Thompson & Warsi ) specially concerned with anisotopic grid generation. I also want to know about triangulations and am looking for very basic material for beginners. Please help me for the same.

Re: Anisotropic Adaptation

1. W. Kyle Anderson, "A grid generation and flow solution method for the Euler equations on unstructured grids", Journal of Computational Physics, 110, 23-38, (1994)

( I guess it appeared as NASA report also. Check out NASA TM-4295. Explains the step by step procedure involved in 2-D unstructured grid generation using Delaunay triangulation technique. )

2. D.J. Mavriplis, "Adaptive mesh generation for viscous flows using Delaunay triangulation", Journal of Computational Physics", 90, 271-291 (1990).

(You can also search for ICASE reports at Look for reports published by Mavriplis and/or Venkatakrishnan.

In Particular there is a paper by Mavriplis on "Unstructured mesh generation and adaptivity".)

3. T.J. Barth, "Aspects of unstructured grids and finite-volume solvers for Euler and Navier-Stokes equations", AGARD Report, 787 (1992)

(A well written report which will help you to understand the issues...!)

Good Luck,

Re: Anisotropic Adaptation

If you are interested in commercial anisotropic mesh adaption then have a look at;

Hope this is of interest to you.
