Abstract

Applications of Computer Aided Geometric Design (CAGD) techniques for effficient and accurate boundary/surface/volume structured grid generation and adaption are presented. The Non-Uniform Rational B-Spline (NURBS) representation for parametric geometric entity definition is employed. The applications include redistribution, refinement, remapping, adaption and optimization of structured grids. Computational examples of practical interst are presented to demonstrate the success of these methodologies.
