(1). A structured mesh which starts from the top end of C and curves around it, then merges at the lower right hand side with the upper mesh. It is called C-type. (2). A structured mesh which connects the begining and the end of the mesh and forms a O-shape. It is called O-type. (3). You have to take a look at the picture of the mesh first. This can be found in the book (free on Internet) by Joe Thompson,"Numerical Grid Generation". (page-29,30) Web address can be found in the REsources section.
