A Meshing Toolkit for Physics-Based Solvers



The CAD2Mesh software was developed by a team at the Rockwell Science Center starting in the mid-1990s due to a need for unstructured and structured volume meshing capabilities. The meshing software, called “UNISG” at the time, was used by Rockwell scientists on a number of high profile projects, including B1-B store separation and space shuttle return to flight applications. It has been used in the development of many physics-based solvers at HyPerComp.


The CAD2Mesh software is currently implemented using an object-oriented C++ architecture using standard open libraries for the GUI and 3-D graphics, allowing for porting to all graphical flavors of Linux as well as Windows.
