Abstract

A novel 3D automatic mesh generation and refinement package C. Boccaletti, E. Nistico & P. Sordi Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Rome "La Sapienza ", Italy. Abstract This paper describes an automatic mesh generator usually suitable for finite element simulations. The mesh generation algorithms that allow to create a mesh respecting some prescribed constraints and boundaries are illustrated. The aim of the authors has been to build a user-friendly software that is able to solve practical 3D finite elements problems. The refinement process of the mesh allows to calculate the most important quantities for a general electromagnetic configuration. The software has been developed on the Windows platform. The 3D visualisation provided into the package is obtained by the OpenGL programming language. This allows to follow the evolution of the calculation and to check the results. 1 Introduction The availability of automatic mesh generators for 3D domains with complex geometry is m
